Last month Uncle Nick came to Texas for a visit!
Believe it or not in the past 6 years I have only seen my little brother Nick one time! He had never even met Josselyn or Julianna until his past visit. It is so hard when life takes you in different directions. We live in Texas and my brother lives in Los Angeles and the long distance kept us from seeing each other for far too long! My brother's band Bleaux was recently signed by Interscope records & one of their first out of town gigs was to play at SXSW (South by Southwest) a huge music festival in Austin, TX. Our entire family was so excited that Nick would be stepping foot in the lone star state. My mom and little sis drove to Austin to pick Nick up as soon as he finished his final show and brought him to Dallas for a few days of R&R.
Josselyn & Julianna absolutely loved their Uncle Nick! Josse & Nick were inseparable the entire time. They played, danced, sang & jammed out every second they could. She even made Nick give her horsey rides (which is exactly what I use to make him do for me when we were kids!) lol I have come to the conclusion that everyone needs that silly, fun, crazy, loving Uncle
Uncle Nick showered the girls with goodies but the best surprise of all was a keyboard for Josse & a baby toy piano for Jewel. Nick is a talented musician so of course he had to start training his little proteges with their instruments as soon as they met. I can't explain how precious it was to watch them play together & witness my little brother fall in love with my girls. They stole his heart immediately & they both managed to wrap him around their teeny-tiny fingers. Family truly is priceless and irreplaceable. This trip was a good reminder that no matter how crazy, chaotic and busy life is, it is so important to find ways to see your loved ones who may not live so close.
We had the best 4 days ever and I did not want it to come to an end. We did some shopping, went to the Grapevine Aquarium, Dallas Arboretum & enjoyed the most amazing dinner at this Jazz restaurant called Buttons. The time flew by wayyy to quick and it was really hard to say goodbye. A lot of tears were shed (by all of us) and Josselyn still asks if Uncle Nick is coming over every other day. We are counting down until Nick's next trip to Dallas in June!
