Madd Max Head To Trunk Or Treat

 At their school, where there were games.
 A bounce house.
 And themed car trunks with candy.
And trunk games - here you tossed balls into the dragon's mouth.
 As the night went on, Max ended up lying on the floor, munching candy.
Jess and the kids arrived home at 9 to find Edith and Jane running in circles in the front yard.  All kids got a second wind, and remained up until 10pm.

Madd Max Has A Happy Halloween

 With their crew.
The gold dragon.
 A sharp robot.
 A snow leopard and Cinderella.
 The saddest kitty eva  (Jess' favorite pix).
 A horsey.
 And the horsey's sister.

Madd Max Carve

 At Steve and Marissa's.
 Maddie had a very clear vision of what her pumpkin should look like.  She watched very carefully as Jess drew it out - with her adjustments ("No - I said a scary face!") - and Sam carved.
 The Findleys also created art.
 As did Lilly who was old enough to do some of her own carving with Mom's assistance.
 Max had not been interested in the actual work creating the jack-o-lantern, but was curious to see what went on inside.
Maddie's scary pumpkin face.
And Sam's prize pumpkin, expressing his the way he's been feeling the last couple of weeks.

Madd Max Pick Pumpkins

 At the Pasadena Pumpkin Patch.
 There were pony rides which Maddie took very seriously.
And Max was unsure of at first and then really dug.
 Maddie's highlight - holding this gray bunny in the petting zoo.  She stayed there for about half an hour - a bit stressful half hour for Jess, as 4 year-old love is very intense.
Almost a decent family photo.

The Scrapper Visits The LB Aquarium

Max got to have a special day with Mom, also at an aquarium - here he is very excited about the Dori-s.
 His fav - the shark tank at feeding time.
He was also fascinated by the little birds that would sit on your hand and drink nectar - as long as they stayed on Jess' hand.

Madd Max Head To The Monster Mash

 At Lilly's school.  Where there were art projects.
 Cookie decorating.
 People watching.
 And Maddie's favorite, particularly because she got to do it herself.
 Max needed Jess' help to reach the joysticks.
 A blurry but wider view of the joy.

Slappy Relaxes

 After so many doctor's visits, it was time for a day of leisure in NoCal, starting with brunch with Kears.
And Dex.
 Then a trip to the California Academy of the Sciences.
Where there was a 3D dinosaur movie.
 Maddie's favorite exhibit - watching the scuba diver clean one of the tanks from above.
 And then home for a little dance.

 A little hammock with Maggie.
 A lesson on how to make strawberry milk from Elizabeth.
 Some rumpus with Alex and Lilly.
And just a really cute shot of Fiona.
