Happy 9th Birthday Brandon!

Brandon turned 9 on July 5th! I can't believe he is already 9. He has come such a long way from the 1 pound, 14 ounces that he was born at.

Brandon opened presents from us shortly after waking up.
Brandon and Wesley had their first day of rec camp on Brandon's birthday.

After rec camp, we went to AC Moore for their craft day. Brandon and Wesley made travel game bags that have tic-tac-toe and finger twister.
At dinner time, all of Brandon's grandparents came over. Uncle Rich, Aunt Debbie, Ben, Zack and our next door neighbors also came over to celebrate. We grilled and then had Pokémon cake.

Beach Days

We finally made it to the beach on July 3rd and July 4th. We were only at the beach for a few hours on July 3rd since it was really hot and Brandon got a little dehydrated and had a bad headache. We were there for the whole afternoon on July 4th. Brandon loves the beach and could spend all day there. Wesley is slowly warming up to it but prefers to go to the pool. Debbie, Rich, Zack, and Ben were visiting so they were at the beach with us.

Fireworks

On July 3rd our town had fireworks. We hung out with Stu's fire department before the fireworks and ate with them. The kids all had fun playing with sparklers. We then watched the fireworks. Both Brandon and Wesley really liked them.

Blue Claws Game

Last Friday night we went to the Blue Claws game. We met our friend, Chris, and his daughter, Charlie Ann, at the game. It was Star Wars night and also fireworks after the game.

Happy 6th Birthday Wesley

Wesley turned 6 on June 29th. He started the day by opening his presents from me and Stu.
He then went to soccer camp. We brought munchkins with us for his group to have at break time.
After camp, we met a lot of Wesley's friends from his kindergarten class for a pool play date at the Ocean Township pool. His friend, Olivia, happened to be at the pool too. Brandon joined us after he was done with soccer camp. A few of his friends were there too. I bought Wesley's friends from his class ice cream at the pool for a special birthday treat.
After the pool we went back to our house. All of the grandparents joined us for dinner and cookie cake. Papa Earle's birthday is the day before Wesley's so we included him on the cake.

Soccer Camp

Brandon and Wesley were both at Monmouth University soccer camp last week. Wesley went a half day and Brandon went a full day. They both enjoyed it.

Canoeing

Last weekend we went canoeing at Thompson Park. It was through the Monmouth County Park System. We were all able to go in one canoe which was nice. We saw swans including baby swans, a turtle, and heard a bull frog.
