Last weekend I went home with Luke, a student in Mr. Salsich’s class. After we unpacked and settled in, Luke and I played some video games on his Playstation.

The next day we drove to New Jersey to watch “Monster Jam” – a monster truck show at the Izod Center. It was amazing! If you don’t know what a monster truck show is, it is an event where HUGE trucks race around a track and jump over ramps and cars. They even drive right over old cars!

There is even a monster truck named Taz! Unfortunately, he wasn’t at Monster jam though
It was a lot of fun and I got a souvenir from the show.

After the show we got to see the Empire State Building in New York City. We took a picture of it from across the Hudson River.

Then we drove back to Luke’s house in Connecticut. What an exciting day!
The next day was Superbowl Sunday! The New York Giants played the New England Patriots for the championship of American Football. I enjoyed watching the big game and seeing all the funny commercials. Luke’s family are New York Giants fans, so they were very happy when the Giants won.
Here I am in a Giants’ hat after their big victory:
The Giants won!
The game was exciting, but I think I’d still rather watch rugby – some of the rules in American Football were a little confusing!
I had a fantastic weekend with Luke and his family!
Have you ever been to a monster truck show?
Did you watch the Superbowl?
