Madd Max Goes To The Carnival

Our local school was having it's annual carnival, which awesomely had horsies.
The carnival reminded Jess of the one held by her house, growing up, except with about 6' high more dust.
Max watched Maddie and Jess ride the strawberries from the sidelines.
Later Sam took Maddie on the bumper cars. As we left, she begged, "Please, what about that one?" to every ride we passed.

Madd Max Gets A Taisie Visit

Who came thru on a trip to her Peace Corp reunion, and played the "Catch Me!" game.
She also taught Maddie how to take her first photo.
And dined with the fam.

Madd Max Enjoys Another Game

With Alex and Holly.
And Lilly and Jess, and some fort building.
And a kitchen free-for-all with Marissa, Drew, Greg, Suzanne, ELF and Aarin.
Culminating with some box on the head time.

Madd Max Fix What's Wrong

Sometimes Max gets bored in the car. Crying follows.Next, Maddie's, "Max, what's wrong?" Followed by, "Mama, Maddie hold Max hand." The hand holding makes both of them happy.

Madd Max Heads To Nirvana Again


Mimi headed back to LA on business, and having hit the elation jackpot, took Jess and the kiddos back out to...
You guessed it - the home of the Mickey Mouse pancake.The merry-go-round - still a big hit, although Max gave the "all-done" sign halfway in. (His favorite was the Tiki Room).Ok, really, his fav was waiting on line because he got to shake chain over and over again.
Maddie's new favorite - the map. The next morning, she even pulled it out to discuss the castle, Mickey Mouse and Mimi. She walked around the park like this.
By nap time, Maddie was not willing to admit she was tired. She did, however, snuggle in with Mimi on the Jungle Cruise, getting the best of both worlds.

Slappy And Her Cuz Have Common Interests


They both enjoyed pouring water over the garden statue, dubbed "Mama."
They both enjoyed clean feet.
Bare or not.
They both decided that if their parents weren't taking them, they were still going to head off to "The Mountain High."
Maddie did convince Taisie and Sam into some canoeing which was the highlight of her trip and included a Maddie-sized oar.
Yeah, cousins are awesome.

Slappy And Dad Head To Chocorua

Where Maddie was confused by the barn with no animals, but was still able to enjoy the swing.
There she re-met her cousin, Gwen.
Who has the cutest pigtails ever.

The Scrapper Made It Thru

Somehow.

The Scrapper Has A Sad Face

Max has a little penchant for the dramatic. The cause of this could be actual pain. It is equally as likely that it could be that he has just been told he can't touch the DVD player.

Slappy Has A Pony Tail

Jess arrived home to find Maddie with her first ponytail, put in by Karol. Jess was enchanted.

The Scrapper Enjoys Spaghetti

Please note, Max's unique take on how keep a steady stream of pasta into the mouth.

The Scrapper Boots Up

With big sis out of town (in Chocorua for Toby's birthday) there is no better time to get into her stuff.
The coveted rain boot.
