Sometimes even superheroes need one.

Where Jess learned the difference between a rally and a race.
Maddie's fav part.
At the beginning there were monster trucks and fireworks and bursts of flame and big jumps.
Which soon became a race, and then another race, and so on. Apparently the fam got to see the sport of monster trucks rather than the spectacle.
Max still totally dug it.
Madd not so much.
We left at intermission (it was 9pm), after telling Max the trucks were also going to sleep.
While another race is not in the future, the fam is still open to a rally.

His third playdate that was done just for him. He invited "His #1, Stella." He was ecstatic.
Maddie had Aurelia over, and all 4 played with Barbies for an hour and 15 min. By themselves. With no adult intervention. Quietly. What!?!

And was a total pro. He even gave a thumbs up during his plaque cleaning. He also got a warning about 2 cavities starting on the back of his molars.
Maddie did not do well, but got a clean teeth bill of health.

Mimi brought Maddie down for lunch, where she had her first Shirley Temple.
Later, she was fascinated by the fact that all the plumbing on the sets was pretend. That and that only some of the drawers were dressed with things.

Post operation, she arrived home and got snacks from the Production Office.
An awesome beading kit from Aunt Tara and the cuzs - she spelled her name first thing.
And a Barbie playdoh making kit from Tante.
All were put to good use in her week staying home from school while waiting for the skin graft to heal.

For the 2 weeks following Maddie's operation, she is not allowed to run or jump. This means no preschool. With Jess out of town for 2 days and Sam working, she had the best time ever. Mornings with Elizabeth.
Afternoons with Fiona and Ellie.

It was ridiculously windy outside, but you would not know it from the jacket-less children.
Some awesome things about the zoo.
The feeding of the grizzlys, who ran out and fished for live prey.
Standing like a flamingo.
The compost section of the trash bins.
And the train.

But first, a little coffee.
Having a friend ride with you = awesome.
The all-you-can-eat sample bar.
And the tour - which the adults realized would be much better during the week, when the machines actually run.

To correct a puncture of her eardrum caused by a local ENT during a routine cleaning.
It was tough on both kiddos.
But the recovery was quick - after a nap, Maddie began decorating a pony.
And by 4pm, she was up blowing bubbles and eating pizza.
