Madd Max Have An Art Show

Held by their preschool.That's Max's fine work - Tempera Paint with Toy Truck and Car, Hands and Fingers.
Maddie had the first piece in the silent auction.
A collage that her folks won for $20.
Every 15 minutes an artist was featured, and Jess and Sam learned that you bring your kids to their art show, as they were the only parents without them.
And finally something to think on - Mixed Media Collage on Pinecone.

Madd Max Goes To Mom's Work

But they did not get a chance to handle the blood slides.

Madd Max Get A Swing

After hearing about cousin Gwen's swing, Sam decided to make a swing for the kiddos.
After recovering from falling off the back in tandem, the swing was a huge hit.
The sharing was not.

Madd Max Have Both Grandmas


To enjoy breakfast with.
Which is next to the pet store. Max loved the kittens, and spent his time pointing and saying, "Ooo, whoo, ooo!"
Taisie got in some good train playing before she headed out on her flight back to Providence.

Madd Max Return - Take 2

After having surgery cancelled for the second time, due to a cough that has hung on, the family and Mimi headed back down to Burbank. Waiting for them at home were these flowers from the Higgins/Vaziri clan and many a sympathetic ear.

Madd Mad Celebrate 2

2 years of Elizabeth!
The castle bounce house was something to celebrate as well.
It was a packed event.
With BBQ and Dora cake.
Dora cake that was very hard to wait for.
(Please note, ELF's arm around Maddie as they waited. The girls hadn't seen each other in 2 weeks, and spent the entire party by each other's side).

Madd Max Celebrate Train Day

See the sticker? Train Day!
video
Which began with a ride on the Metro to Union Station.
Max's first Metro ride; Jess' second.
Upon arriving at the Station, the fam quickly realized it was waaay too packed to see any of the exhibits, but the fountains proved to be equally as interesting.
Olvera Street was just as fun.
