The house guest tradition lives

You were warned that we had people visiting us this past weekend. If you have ever read this blog before then you know what this post will be about...More specifically..we had a fun family outing to Nickelodeon Universe.We started the afternoon riding the rides with our little cousins. It was so much fun to watch them take in the entire experience. I really think that Fletcher and Fiona had a good time. It brought back so many memories of my little kiddos riding these rides...Little cousins are a fun excuse to ride rides such as Blues Clues ride and the Diego's Rescue Adventure.
After a filling dinner at the food court, some of us stayed to ride the older people's rides and some of us brought little ones home to bed. Ben, Ryan, Emily, Atom, Jennifer and myself did the Flying Dutchman. In fact, I have to add that Ben did a few of the bridges "no hands." I kept my same old style of holding on for dear life through the entire thing. This trip also marks the first time Em has actually wanted to go on the Rock Bottom Plunge and even begged to go on it twice in a row (which we did). That turned out to be the group's favorite ride too. She also conquered her fear of the Avatar ride. She is one step closer to going to Valley Fair. Here's a fun tip for going to Nickelodeon Universe. Go during Monday night football while the rest of the state is watching Brett Farve not win another football game..the place was empty. Simply fabulous.
