Fun with Grandma and Grandpa

We hadn't seen Grandma and Grandpa since the summer so we were all really excited that they were coming down for a visit.   Skylar was asking all week long when will Grandma and Grandpa be here.  It was pretty funny, when she woke up from her nap on the day they were arriving she wanted to make them a welcome card.  We got all the stationary and pens out and I helped her write her card.  Grandma and Grandpa showed up sooner than expect and she hadn't put her card in the envelope just yet, so as they were walking into our house she bust into tears because she just wanted everything to be perfect for their arrival.  So they were greeted with Skylar crying her eyes out. Luckily we had them turn away and she was able to get her card into the envelope and her tears stopped.

For this trip we didn't have too much planned, just kind of go with the flow and see what the kids wanted to do.  Skylar and Grandma spent a lot of time playing Tea Party with their Minnie Mouse dolls, while Grandpa and Madden played with his dump trucks all throughout the house.  Skylar was right next to Grandma during their whole trip.  Constantly asking for Grandma, wanting to play with Grandma, if Grandma was going to wear a sweater, she was going to wear a sweater.  It was all very cute and sweet to watch.  It was like she was Grandma's little shadow.  We were able to break Skylar way from the Minnie Tea Party and got out and did a few activities with Grandma and Grandpa.

We walked on the Oceanside Pier and ate Fish and Chips.


One night we baked homemade pizza.  Grandma made Madden his own "boyish" apron but he refused to wear it and wanted to wear Moms.

We had breakfast at the Carlsbad airport and watched the planes take off and land.  It's Madden's favorite spot to eat.

We took a walk along the lagoon one morning.

Each night and sometimes during the day Grandma and Grandpa would read books to the kiddos.

Like all visits, they always go too fast.  The kids loved spending time with their Grandparents and they always miss them when they leave.  We are already looking forward to their visit during the holidays.



  1. It seems like only yesterday we were walking on the Lagoon path and watching the airplanes take off. Being with you all, and playing with Skylar and Madden is so much fun! I love the picture at the Lagoon with Skylar holding the map so we will know where we are. :-) I don't think Madden walked by a single bush without swatting it with his stick.
    The picture of us reading to Skylar and Madden is so sweet. I do hope Madden will wear his own apron one day. I wish there was a picture of our tea party with the plastic Minnies, one dimensional magnetic dolls, and the 2 furry birds that chirp. Quite a sight!

  2. I can't believe I forgot to mention the picture of Skylar and me with the pelican on the Oceanside pier. This was truly a moment!
