Kennedy's Birthday Party

Wesley and Brandon went to Wesley's friend, Kennedy's, birthday party on Sunday. The party was at Bounce U. Several kids who went to Ivy Hedge with Wesley were at the party so he was happy to see them again now that he is not in school with most of them.

Silly Boys at the Monmouth Game

On Friday night we went to the Monmouth basketball game. They played Manhatten. One of Stu's co-workers had tickets that he gave us. It was a fun game and Monmouth won.

3 day weekend

Last weekend we had a 3 day weekend.

Brandon had his first basketball game of the season on Saturday morning. His first game was supposed to be the weekend before but was cancelled due to the snow. This year he is playing on a 3rd grade/4th grade team. He has improved so much. He did a great job dribbling, passing, getting rebounds, taking shots that were close, and scored a basket! The basket is 9 feet now so higher than the past two years. He was really excited.
Later that night we had Stu's 40th birthday party that was rescheduled from when he was sick. It was at Otto's. Debbie, Rich, and Zack came for the night to go to his party along with some of our other friends. Wesley picked out the birthday cake that we had.
On Sunday we went to Stu's parents for breakfast. Brandon, Wesley, and Zack were all in their Steelers jerseys for the big game later that night.
On Sunday afternoon we went to the Titans ice hockey game. They play in Middletown. They won by a lot of points.
On Monday we were all off from school. I brought Brandon and Wesley to the Fort Monmouth gym for open gym time with some of our friends.

My Birthday

My birthday was on Monday. I had to take a family sick day that day since Brandon had a stomach virus the day before. We ordered food in to the house on Sunday night and celebrated with my parents.
On Monday, after Wesley got home from school, I brought him sledding at a small hill around the corner from our house. He had a really fun time. Brandon did not come since he had been sick the day before and had basketball practice that night.

Adam and Ashley's Wedding Weekend

Our friends, Adam and Ashley, got married last weekend in Asbury Park. Stu was in the wedding. The weekend started with a Welcome Dinner at the Asbury Park Yacht Club. Adam is in a band that played at the Welcome Party. They were really good.
The next night was the wedding. The wedding was at The Asbury Hotel. It was a lot of fun.

Special Child of the Week

Wesley was special child of the week at school the week that he went back to school after the break. He was so excited. He had to fill out a paper to bring back to school that said what some of his favorite things were and also bring in pictures of him from when he was a baby up to now. He got to bring in something he likes. He chose his hatchimal. Stu and I got to go into school one day for about 15 minutes. I read a story that Wesley chose from home and we talked to the other students about what we do. Wesley's teacher shared what makes him special to her and we had to share what makes him special to us. He was so happy to have us come and visit his classroom.
