Madd Max Have A Happy Easter

 Beginning with baskets.

 Followed by the scavenger hunt.  It was just as Jess started making this video that she realized that the stove was perhaps not the smartest hiding place.
And finally an egg hunt in the backyard.

Slappy Has A Birthday Party

 At Pump It Up - a place with 2 rooms of giant inflatables.  The kids listened closely to the instructional video.
Very closely.
 And then the fun began.
Yeah.
 
 Oh yeah.
 And then the draw of tube.
That literally did nothing, but eventually ended up with about 10 kids inside it and more clamering to get in.
 The black light room.
 Dude.
 Followed by the party room.
And some Hello Kitty cake.
video
And a birthday girl drunk with power on her inflatable throne.

Madd Max Changes Stuff

 Crown moulding is added and then painted.  Twice (well, only once so far, but another coat will happen once Jess gets motivated).
And changes the placement of laundry hookups so that the washer/dryer can actually fit in the closet instead of pushing into the hall.

Madd Max Have A Village

 As Hillary said, it takes one. 
As of April 2, Toby and Taisie will have a home 4 blocks from Sam and Jess.
The little fountain by Taisie's soon-to-be studio in the backyard, where Lea told stories to Max.
