Madd Max Gets In A Last Morning With Mimi

Who has been out since the day before Maddie's surgery.
Note: the car seat was being changed from Mimi's car back to Jess'. For those who are not aware, car seat in car - terrible. Car seat in house - so awesome it's worth fighting over.

Slappy Has A Special Playdate

Set up by Mimi, who found "Fairies and Dragons" in the Valley, a place that offered Fairy themed parties to little girls. After speaking with the owner about the fact that Maddie recently had surgery that stopped her from going to Disneyland or parks, Mimi got the store opened up for an hour for Maddie.
And her BFF, ELF.
Nothing like a ladybug on your cheek, a butterfly on your arm.
And a princess tea party with your best friend.

Madd Max Returns

Each time the fam has come home from a surgery or attempted surgery, there have been gifts waiting to buck up either the kids or their parents. This time both kiddos were thrilled to see massive amounts of balloons from the Williams' and the Leonhardt fam.
All followed up by an ice cream cake from Mimi and DoeZee.

Slappy Recovers

At a very swollen breakfast.Followed by some card opening from the teachers and kids in her preschool.
And finally in the afternoon at the local Kid's Museum, aka The OMG Don't Hit Your Ear On Those Toys Or Kids Museum.
In the back there was a small zoo, where DooZee impressed Max with his goose call skillz.
And watched Maddie strive to be back at 100%.
The magnifying glass was just the right speed, for Jess.

Slappy Still Has Style

Even when she isn't feeling super awesome.

Madd Max Heads To Palo Alto - Take 3

A relatively calm drive up.
Followed by a less calm dinner.
Where Jess tried to work from the restaurant using the kids' crayons, and ignore her stress factor. The margarita didn't help the stress too much, but boy, did those sets look interesting.
DooZee came up with the most awesome game of peekaboo.
Times two.
And then later, the game of "I'm a robot!" with the insides of 2 boxes.
