Bowling with Friends

The kids and I have Spring break this week. Yesterday we met up with two of Wesley's best friends, Kennedy and Olivia, to go bowling. The kids had such a good time. They are way too cute together. After bowling we brought the kids to Pete and Elda's for lunch. They have the best pizza. Wesley is not a huge fan of pizza usually but he loved their pizza and ate almost the whole slice.
On Sunday we went to the outlets. The Easter bunny was walking around so we had to get a picture with him.

Wesley the Easter Bunny

Great Adventure

Great Adventure just opened again for the season. We went on Saturday. Brandon loved the rides as usual but Wesley surprised us by going on so many more rides than he did last year and liking almost all of them. The only one he didn't like was the kids roller coaster but he is willing to try it again to see if he likes it the next time. Brandon and Wesley also liked seeing some of the characters. A dance party with the characters started when we were seeing them and Wesley went and joined in and danced with Daffy Duck.

Monmouth University Basketball NIT Game

Last night we went to see Monmouth play in the NIT. They won their first game so it was their second game in the tournament since they won their first game. They played GW. Unfortunately they lost the game. It definitely was not the best that they played. They had a great season though and we can't wait to go to more games next year!

Breakfast with the Easter Bunny

We went to the Breakfast with the Easter Bunny today at Stu's fire department. Brandon and Wesley were both excited to see the Easter Bunny. We also went in the smoke trailer which taught the kids a lot about fire safety. Wesley's friend, Dominic, from school and his family were there too as well as friends from the fire department.

Easter Egg Hunt

Yesterday afternoon I brought Brandon and Wesley to an Easter Egg Hunt. I found out about it earlier in the morning and thought they would enjoy it. My friend, Leigh Anne, met us with her kids, Tyler and Travis, at the hunt. Each age went by itself. The kids collected plastic eggs in their buckets and then had to take out the pieces of paper inside and redeem them for candy. It was a big hit!

End of Basketball

Brandon's last basketball game of the season was a few weeks ago. At the end of the game his coach passed out trophies to the kids.

Child of the Week

Wesley is child of the week this week at school. We had to make a poster with pictures of him which is hanging on the wall at school this week. He came home from school on the first day with a crown and brought munchkins to school on Monday for a treat. Each day he has had a job at school and has brought show and tell and a book for his teacher to read.

I am linking up to Kelly's Korner today. My name is Karen and I have been blogging for 8 years. I started my blog when I was going through infertility treatments with my oldest son, Brandon. I got pregnant with Brandon and his twin sister. Unfortunately my sac ruptured on his twin sister at 19 1/2 weeks and I delivered her a week later. I stayed pregnant with Brandon until 26 weeks, 1 day when he was born, weighing 1 pound 14 ounces and 13 inches long. Brandon is now 7 1/2 and a very healthy and happy 2nd grader.

Wesley was born full term in June 2011. He will be 5 this year and is in preK.

I have been married to my husband, Stu, for 10 years this Friday. I can't believe it has been that long already.

I am a kindergarten teacher. I really love working with children. I wanted to be a teacher from the time that I was in kindergarten!
