Weekend Fun with Uncle Jessee and Nico

I think it was only a couple weeks ago when Jessee called and said he was buying tickets for a trip down.  We were definitely ready for them to visit because they hadn’t been down for almost a year and a half and after seeing how much fun the kids had with their cousins over the summer, we knew it would be a great time.

Right when Nico came into the house the kids were full of excitement and couldn’t slow down all evening.  Sadly the evening went downhill pretty quickly when poor Madden hit his mouth and was bleeding everywhere.  We got that fixed up when only a couple hours later in the night he woke up with the stomach flu and was throwing up all night.  Madden had such a rough evening that he had to sit out the first day of fun.  We had Skylar miss school so she could hang with her cousin.  Jake and Skylar took Nico and Jessee to the trampoline park.  It was their first time at one and they had a blast.  After an hour of straight jumping the four of them headed to the beach.  It ended up being the best weather day while they were here so they spend a couple hours there.  Once they got home from the beach it was straight to the pool for some more water fun. 








Thankfully the next day Madden was back to about 75%.  He wasn’t eating but was at least able to join in on the fun.  All the kids were up early so I took them to the donut shop.  Jake and Skylar had dance practice so Madden and I took Uncle Jessee and Nico to the Museum of Making Music.  It wasn’t Nico’s first choice but once he got there and starting working on the scavenger hunt the Museum had he was fine.  We took the boys to the park for a bit and then met up with Skylar and Jake is downtown Carlsbad for pizza and arcade games.  That evening we decided to take the train down to Solana Beach and grab dinner, but once we got to the train station we realized the train was closed for the weekend and had to come up with Plan B.  Nico really wanted to do the Legoland Hotel (us parents weren’t too keen on the idea), but once the train was shut down we figured we needed something that would make the kids happy.  We had dinner at the buffet and let the kids run around the hotel lobby.  You could tell that Legoland was the cherry on top of Nico’s trip, he was so thrilled to be at the hotel again.







The next day we only had until lunch before it was time to head to the airport.  We took the kids to the park and then did some plane flying in our neighborhood, played a couple rounds of Uno, had a quick bite to eat, and then it was time for Uncle Jessee and Nico to head out.

  1. It was great to see the cousins together. Skylar and Madden sure showed Nico and Uncle Jessee a good time! Nico with the drums, and Madden at the organ were cute. Both boys were so serious. And we loved the pictures at the beach.

  2. Oh, and no trip to Uncle Jake and Aunt Nicole's would be complete without a trip to Lego Land!
