By proxy. Jess and Sam headed to Fort Chadwick to view it in style.

As in a friend at his house, just for him. As soon as Stella arrived, Max grabbed his hockey gear to show it off.
Then a drive to dinner.
Maddie also had Aurelia over, but point stands - Max had a friend brought just for him. It only took 3 years.

But first lunch and some story telling.
Then some sliding.
This picture does not do justice to the red faces after an hour and a half of gymnastics in 95 heat.
On walk back, every post was checked for spiders.

Maddie is taking more responsibilities on, and is very proud of herself for doing so. Here, after visiting the farmer's market, she carried the grapes and asparagus to the car. At home, she "cleans up", ie makes her, her brother's and her parents' beds. Even more impressive is that every morning, she gets up and feeds herself and her brother breakfast. This allows Sam and Jess to stay in bed until 7:15 on weekends instead of getting out of bed with the kids at 6:00. Oh yes.

With Mimi, who took him out all by himself to a children's museum where he shot water guns and sat in the pilot's seat of a real airplane. The following day, Maddie got her special day at Build-A-Bear and Joanne's Fabrics where she picked out her Halloween costume pattern. They both felt very grown up and important.
