Madd Max Gets Reunited


A last walk by the ocean, enjoying 10 awesome years.
And then a long cuddle upon return, where Maddie immediately asked if Kourtnee could have another sleepover.

Max has been asking for months to play soccer.  Class did not let him down - he was thrilled from start to finish.

Madd Max Celebrates 10 Years

With their first overnight with the babysitter.  The 'rents headed up to Cambria where they got engaged.
And there was a little wine tasting to be handled.
Beautiful country.
An evening on the hotel room patio,
And a walk at sunset.

Slappy Graduates

In the morning, Jess was gently reminded by another mom that today was Maddie's graduation.  She had guessed from Maddie's casual appearance, that Jess had forgotten this big event.  She was right.  Luckily, Jess was able to make it, especially because Maddie had a special part.
Some of her class.

Her flag salute.
When the kids got called up to receive their diplomas (which were actually CDs of pictures from over the years), the teachers would say something about them.  Miss Karine called up, "Maddie Page, who is willing to do anything."

Madd Max Celebrate A Marriage

Holly and Keith's!
Lookit that dapper group.
A toast.
To this fine union.

Madd Max Love Grandparents

Because they play hockey with you, even when you consistently put their guys in the penalty box.
They also actively involve you in cooking.
The best part of which is, they let you crack the eggs.

Madd Max Say Goodbye

To the Storms, who are moving back East.  They sent them off with a game of Shoots and Ladders.

Madd Max Live In Burbank

 And how can you tell?
 
 Because to add that bigger window to Burbank standards, this had to be done to Maddie's room.
PS Look, we're getting a porch roof!

Madd Max Begins Construction

The original sliding doors.
Two days after construction began.
And from the inside.
The front window before.
Mid-day on day 3.
And the end of day 3.
So much light.

Madd Max Go To The Getty


 And Jess plays with Hipstamatic.
 A view.
 A river.
 A garden.
 A fam.
 The closest thing to a family photo for the K-Ps.
And the sibs.

Madd Max Crack Themselves Up

That's brilliant comedy.
