Last week we went to Great Adventure with our friends, Kennedy and Olivia. Kennedy and Olivia are Wesley's friends from Ivy Hedge. All four kids had so much fun going on rides, although Brandon was mad that he couldn't go on some of the bigger rides since the lines were too long. I love the friendship these kids have maintained despite all going to different schools this past year.

A few weeks ago there was a solar eclipse. My parents were watching Brandon and Wesley that morning since I had kindergarten orientation so my mom ordered solar eclipse glasses for everyone. The weather was nice and sunny until about 1 1/2 hours before the eclipse when the clouds came out and covered the sun. We were able to see the eclipse though since every so often the clouds parted before getting covered again. We had about 75% coverage here. It was pretty cool to see.

We stayed a town over from UMass when we were on vacation so went to the book store one day and went to dinner at restaurants there. On our last day we went to take a picture of Stu, Brandon, and Wesley since Stu went to college at UMass.

After Yankee Candle we went to the Deerfield Butterfly Conservatory.

We woke up on the second morning of our vacation to it raining so we had to find indoor activities to do. Our first stop was Yankee Candle Company in Deerfield, MA. It is huge. There were tons of rooms and each room had a different theme/ different things to do. Brandon and Wesley really liked it there.
