Six Flags Great Adventure

Brandon, Wesley, my parents, and I went to Six Flags Great Adventure this afternoon. We bought season passes for next year at the end of September and they needed to be validated by November 2nd so we decided to go today to do that and then let the kids go on some rides. Brandon loved it which I knew he would but Wesley also wound up loving it and went on several rides. He has always been afraid of rides so that was huge for him. They also had a trick or treating area that we went to. They gave each kid a bag filled with candy and cookies and then there were characters dressed for Halloween to stop and take pictures with. The kids enjoyed seeing the Great Adventure characters. They are both looking forward to going back next year when it reopens.

A Wedding, Soccer Game, and Mad Science Birthday Party

Last night we went to Stu's cousin, Allycia's, wedding. The ceremony was outside and the view was beautiful. The place where they had the reception was also really nice.
Brandon had a soccer game today. Uncle Rich, Aunt Debbie, Papa Earle, Grandma Gail, and Papa Jim all came out to watch him play. He had a good game. He was where the ball is the whole game and had some good kicks.
After Brandon's soccer game I brought the boys to Brandon's friend, Brandon's, birthday party. Brandon was also a preemie and spent time in the same NICU as Brandon did. He had a mad science birthday party which was a lot of fun. The kids did experiments and there was a scientist who came that did experiments with the kids. The kids also were given a lab coat to wear, safety goggles, and gloves.

Firetruck Visit, Birthday Party Weekend, and Beach

In the beginning of the month Stu's fire department went to Wesley's school for fire prevention month. Stu went one of the days and Wesley was so excited to see daddy there.
We had a busy weekend with two birthday parties. Yesterday we went to Jack's first birthday party. It was at the firehouse. Wesley had a really good time at the party since a lot of his friends were there. Brandon didn't enjoy it as much since there weren't any kids his age there. Both kids enjoyed decorating picture frames at the party.
This morning Stu took the kids and Hershey to the beach to run around and throw the ball to Hershey. I had a professional day at work so I couldn't join them.
Then Brandon went to Stu's parent's house and Stu brought Brandon to his friend Kyle's birthday party. Kyle goes to school with Wesley. The party was at his house and it was a Superhero party. Wesley wore a Batman shirt that had a cape attached to it. He was so excited to wear it. Stu said that Wesley had a good time at the party. A lot of his friends from school were there and Superman showed up at the party along with a woman who did face painting. Wesley had his face painted like a pirate.
