Madd Max Has A Cooler Bottle Of Wine

This one.
Auntie Kerri gave Sam and Jess 3 bottles of wine on their wedding day.  One that matured at 1 year, one at 5 years and one at 10.  It was delicious.
Eventhough the dust and red cork caused some worry. 
(To celebrate - Sam and Jess cooked together at home while the kids played outside.  Perfect.)

Madd Max Head To A Low Country Boil

 At the SmithAldridges.
 Where Suzanne's mom had gotten stopped in the airport for her bag of spices for the boil.
 Max's latest favorite activity.
 The kids table where Lilly was given the task of Supervisor.  Sometimes it's tough being the oldest.
The adults table - full of adults and Myles, and shrimp, corn, sausage, potatoes, bread and turnips.

Madd Max Get Older

 Stella turned 4.
 A little beer was had at the neighbors birthday party.
 Where our neighbor turned 30, which meant all the kids were under 1, except ours.

Madd Max Has A School Buddy

With Jess working from home, she now has the luxury to be able to walk Maddie to school.  One of Maddie's friends from preschool, Luke, also attends with her and gets dropped off at our house. Max then heads out the door with Luke's sis, Stella to preschool.  In the evening - Jess picks up Max and Stella and Luke's parents grab the other 2.  It takes a village of working parents to make it to and from the office and daycare.

Madd Max Have A Last Morning

Looking at tiny clams.
Playing Candyland.
Smiling for the camera.

Madd Max Have Another Beach Day

Jumping off dunes.
Lookit that air.
Standing by dunes.
Digging caves and stairs in dunes.
Jess remembers doing this and getting badly burnt on her butt.
A pool dug by Uncle Ant.
Some help from Dozey.
And some tag with Aunt Tara.
He wrote this.
Girl Power #2!
One of Maddie's biggest thrills - taking the dog for a walk.  She felt very grownup letting people pet her dog and making sure he didn't lick anyone's toes.
Max can typically stay up until 9:30, easily.  Not so much on Fire Island.
