Bring Your Kid to Work Day

Brandon and Wesley both came with me to school today for bring your kid to work day. Brandon had been looking forward to today since last year. Wesley was back and forth until last night if he was going to come to school with me because he was afraid to meet my kids and didn't want to miss going to his school. Both boys wound up having a really good time. They made friends with the students in my class and enjoyed doing kindergarten work. They were extra excited since it was pajama day and they got to wear pajamas to school.

Spring Weather Finally!

We finally had some beautiful Spring weather this weekend! On Saturday we went to Great Adventure after t-ball and soccer were done. Wesley goes on all of the kids rides now and Brandon went on them with him. We also saw a magic show there.
Yesterday we went to Dorbrook Park. I think everyone else had the same idea. It was really crowded but Brandon and Wesley still had fun.
Wesley went on a bike ride around the block when we got back from the park.
We finished the weekend with getting ice cream!

First T-ball Game

Wesley had his first t-ball game yesterday. He was so excited for it! In t-ball each team is at bat 3 times and in the field 3 times. When he was in the field he played first base one of the innings. The other two innings he was just on the field. He did get the ball and threw it to first base like they are supposed to one of the times. He hit the ball off the tee each inning. The third hit was a really good hit. He seemed to really enjoy playing. After the game we rushed over to Brandon's soccer game (their games are at the same times each week) but Brandon was taken out pretty much when we got there so we didn't get to see him play.

Siblings Day

Siblings Day was on Sunday. These two are so lucky to have each other. They are truly each other's best friends and will do anything for each other.

Spring Soccer and Rained Out T- Ball

Brandon had his first soccer game of the Spring season this weekend. His game was supposed to be on Saturday but it was really cold and rainy so it was rescheduled to Sunday night at 6:00. He had a fantastic game. He had lots of shots on goal and scored his first goal ever! He was SO excited. He has improved so much since the Fall. He plays soccer almost every day at recess with a lot of first and second graders and it has really played off.
Wesley was supposed to have his first t-ball game on Saturday and a parade. We knew the parade was cancelled the day before due to the impending weather but they had not cancelled the game. We showed up at the field and were then told the game was cancelled.

Oakhurst Fire Department Dinner

On Saturday night Stu and I went to the Oakhurst Fire Department. It was at the Greek Church this year for the first time which is catered by Buona Sera. We had a good time.

A Boy and His Dog

New York City

When we came out of the Lego Land Discovery Center there was a fountain that the kids threw pennies into and made wishes.
We then drove to New York City to stay in a hotel overnight. We went out to dinner at a good Irish Pub that we found. Our hotel was right near Macy's so we stopped there on our way home since they were having a flower show. The kids had fun posing for some pictures.
The next morning we went to the New York auto show. Early in the morning, during the week, is definitely the best time to go. It only started to get crowded as we were leaving it. There were some really neat cars that the kids liked climbing into.
After the auto show we went to the M and M store and to the Hershey store. They were both big hits.
