Peekaboo Playland, that is. Otherwise known as Jess' possibly most favorite indoor playland, as not only is it awesome, but they also provide coffee, comfy sofas and wi-fi for the adults.

Which has been brought about by daycare. Which in turn has made his daycare experience to date, not so awesome. Day 1 - Jess stayed with him all day. Day 2 - Jess stayed for an hour, left for two. When she left he was crying. When she came back, still crying. Day 3 - All by himself. Jess picks him up, and he cries, "Mama! Bye-bye! Maddie! Home! Stroller!" Day 4 - He has been taking some time off of crying to watch the other kids. Day 5 - When Jess goes to leave, he begins wailing and grabbing at her legs. Jess removes him, and heads to the exit. In running to go after her, he trips and slams into the concrete, hence the welt on his forehead. Both Jess and Max are having a tough time, but everyone says it gets better.

Where Maddie shows off the fact that a big change has just happened. Just this month she became one of those kids who you can keep an eye on from afar without fear of her killing/wounding herself.
Max still spends a majority of his time with his parents. This slide involved some heavy static electricity and a very slow butt scoot by Jess.

For kids. Sam has been trying to engage the kids in hockey, and it's beginning to work. Max now yells for "Hockey!!!" when a commercial comes on, and Maddie likes to carry around "the duck" (puck) while she watches.

The best part of daycare - the cars. Whenever Max is with his sister, she always drives the car while Max tries desperately to get a turn. Here, they are plentiful.

Why? Because in January, it was 80 degrees and breezy.One of those days that makes parents happy they have kids, as it has forced them into the beautiful weather vs. staying inside watching movies all day (ew, yuck - sleeping in, even worse).
This gave Aarin and Jess the chance to see one of the most attractive/appealing/titillating sites for a mom - watching their fine hubbies play with their kids.

But first, a lunch introducing Aurelia to Senor Fish. As the kiddos waited for Aurelia, as patiently as 2 under 3 can, Jess sat and thought how very grownup they seemed.
As always, the Fish was a huge hit - particularly once the kids found a hole in the cement filled with water.

It has been a long time since the kiddos went to the park by their house together. And how things have changed.
Aurelia joined them and there was a lot more climbing then before. Maddie even scaled the climbing wall - not pictured, but a first.

Made by Tio Greg the night before, and eaten by Uncle Wills, the morning that the fam headed back to Jersey.

Look closely - that's the top of Max's noggin in front of Tio Greg. It was DoeZee's intention to take him on, but then he was snatched up by Tio Greg at the last minute. This left motion-sick DoeZee to ride alone, wondering, "Why?!?"

The first half hour was spent playing outside. Maddie went back and forth between dancing with the older girls and sitting with Jess.
After circle time, the kids headed back out for snack and play time. Miss Marty gently suggested to Jess that while she was welcome to stay all day, Maddie would probably interact more with the other kids if she headed out. She did, and Maddie did.
Upon arriving home, Jess found Uncle Wills, aka the sitter, and Max cuddling on the couch for some Sesame Street viewing.
