Madd Max Has Day 2


I love you, Uncle Wills!
The Nemo Ride, possibly the new favorite.
The kids asked for more when it ended.
But two full days of Disneyland will knock a kiddo out.

Madd Max Welcomes Mimi's Return


Which means a return to Disneyland.On a hot, sweaty day, ice cream at 10 in the morning seemed just right.
Still a fan favorite.
Yeah, still awesome.
Max's first independent ride.
This time around, Maddie was much more sure of what rides she did and did not want, and Max was much more excited about joining her.
Both kids insisted on riding in the gate, meaning the caged animal train cars.
Who wouldn't?
We returned to the hotel around 3pm for naps, which meant we didn't nap at all and instead just played with these balloons.

The Scrapper Gets A Big Boy Bed


Although Max seemed more impressed by the disassembling/assembling of the bed, then the actual bed.
Maddie seemed very excited by the idea that there was a new place for jumping.

Madd Max Go Swimming

The Leonhardts are back in town, and their solar panel heated pool is back in business. The waiting was tough.
But sooo worth it.
And it was a first for the Kender-Pages - both kids in a pool at once.
Lilly and Elizabeth, already old pros at the pool game.ELF also had learned how to swim this summer.
Fiona cheered/napped poolside.

Slappy Takes To The Sky


Now a seasoned traveler, she knew to take off her shoes before security, and helped Mom put everything on the scanner's belt.
After getting a "Things look just as they should," from the ear canal doctor (her 3rd post-op with him in Palo Alto), Maddie got a special airport ice cream treat and a doctor's present of bows, which she had to wear. All at once.
