Madd Max Has A Quality Morning

A little more time and a lot of bagels with Uncle Wills.
And a quick visit with Tante and crew.

Madd Max Has A Smart Aunt

If only Jess drank beer, back in the day, when she was pumping.

Madd Max Takes The Redeye

To get to Jersey, as Uncle Wills was flying in to meet Clara for the first time.
Aiden got in some quality time with Tio Greg.
And Sonia with Uncle Wills.
The family that Pokemons together...
Or maybe the saying is - the family that Apples to Apples together....

The Scrapper Heads To Universal

 In lieu of a birthday party, Max decided he would like a trip to Universal.  He also decided on getting there the extra hour early to enjoy the Harry Potter rides before the general public.
Here, he reviews the map.
 Madd poses before the statue of a director.
 The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, where Max rode the Flight of the Hippograph 3 times in a row without having to get off.  (He would have gone again, but Sam and Jess were feeling queasy).  There were also 2 rides on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.  That extra hour was amazing.
 Nothing like Butterbeer aka cream soda with a very sweet float at 9am in the morning.
 And Madd's favorite ride - the studio tour.
 Fire, sharks and water.
And to top the day off - a chocolate frog.

Madd Max Head To Taisie's 75th

 The birthday girl and nephew, Spencer.
 The grandchildren.
 Who in order to get them to mingle, were paid $1 to pass appetizers.  If you look closely at Max's mouth, you can see he's doing a great job.
Prosciutto and mozzarella anyone?
 Guest mingling.
 A break from their hard work to play Splendor.
 And more convo.
Happy Birthday, Taisie!  Here's to many more!!

Slappy Grows Up

In heels and a dress by Mimi, breaking Jess' heart just a little.

Slappy Celebrates Taisie

With a mani-pedi pre-75th birthday celebration, something Madd had been asking for for months (she remembered Mimi taking her here and getting a flower on her toenail, 6 years ago).
Slipping into relaxing mode.
3 ladies with new paint jobs.
The paint jobs.
And the toes.  Maddie said the entire thing made her feel like a princess.  Taisie said it made her feel like her mom, who always had her nails painted.
