Slappy Draws The Body

Maddie is learning about the different parts of the body in preschool. Perhaps her teachers have a better grasp of her artistic style then her parents. (Click to zoom in for the descriptions of the various parts of the drawing).

The Scrapper Goes To A Party

Yes, this was in a backyard. At first Jess thought it was a great idea. Then she realized that to get out of the pool part, the kids squished the sides down, creating a backyard-sized mud puddle.

The Scrapper Gets A New One

Max's birthday party kept on giving with a present from Auntie Jamie.
It was his most desired toy; envied at the Findleys, gotten from Taisie and loved until it broke, and now back again. He was so entranced Jess could not get him look up.

The Scrapper Turns 2.2

Max's birthday party came a little late this year. The plan was to have a 3 pool party, but we awoke to a heavy, cold marine layer. The party plan quickly changed to a ball pit/heated pool party. Yes, Sam heated the pool under the aerobed.
There were bubbles.
Attention was called to the fact that this party was almost equal in the ratio of our group of friends to Max's friends from school.
As the morning went on, the heated pool was opened up to Max and his ladies.
It even got warm enough to open the other one.
All over.
The impenetrable pinata.
Which resulted in kids' frezy where they tore it apart with their hands.

Madd Max Celebrate Gimlet

ie Baby Williams.
Celebrated with milkshakes.
A grilled cheese bar.A very well-received grilled cheese bar.In the Leonhardt backyard.The Halloween theme may seem peculiar but with a due date of 10/31, I mean, c'mon.Max thought it was very important to show off this chip - Jess was going for the Superfly hat he made for little Gimlet.
All the kids ate around their own table having 3-5 year old conversations that seemed to involve hilarious tales of pooping.
If you look closely, you can see little babies all over that pumpkin.

Madd Max Head To The Beach

For the first time as a family of four.
This was about as far as Max got.
And this expression demonstrates his thoughts on the whole ocean thing.
His sister, however, was thrilled, yelling at the waves, "Come to Madeline!! Oh my goodness!"
