Slappy Gets The Benefit

Of having an urban family, some of whom are great at doing stuff like this (Liza Mae).  Stuff like this, meaning making this awesome outfit.

Slappy Has A Birthday Party

With some face painting.
 And bubble fun.
 There were 4 pools of bubble liquid.
 For all to enjoy.
Especially when they got the hang of it.
And more bubble guns.

 Which held kiddos as it was pushed around.
A little lunch with Gilbert and his sister, Mia.
Then more being pushed around.

Madd Max See The Endeavor

 But first, a breakfast for all.  Lucky Charms for the kiddos, which they have been waiting for all week.  Donuts for Max.  Fresh squeezed OJ for all.  Breakfast burritos for the big kids.  Each one purchased at a different Burbank establishement.
 The Apollo.
 When you can't reach the Space Shuttle's tires on your own, it's good to have a big sister.
 The Endeavor and Maddie doing her best Dozee impression.
 What the kids loved best - the water table for making dams.

The Scrapper Gets Shots

3 and a finger prick.  To hear him say it - "My body hurts everywhere."
A stop at the donut shop for his first taste of a vanilla frosting filled donut helped ease the pain.

The Scrapper Heads To Lil' Kings

 Full gear.
Out on the ice with his stick - both he and Sam have been waiting for this moment for years.
  Learning from Sean O'Donnell.
Upon arrival at home, Max put all his gear on again, despite the 90 degree weather, to play out back.

Madd Max Didn't Tour Housewares

But Jess did.  Here is Francoise at her giant booth, that actually has conference rooms on a second level.
Outside of the OXO goods, this was Jess' favorite booth she saw.  Purely devoted to this contraption.  Which allows you to dip Oreos without getting your hands wet.  Only Oreos.  Not even another cookie.
 The water tower.
 The beach - please note the snow piles by the breaking water.
 Good times in the hotel room.
 With #3!

Madd Max Did Not Head To Chicago

 But Jess did.  Francoise was attending the International Home and Housewares show with her company, OXO, in Chicago, an ideal place for the annual get together (with the exception of the freezing weather and the whole working thing).
 The visit fell on St. Patrick's Day weekend, where Chicago turns their river green.
 You can find Jess in The Bean there somewhere.
Dinner out with the OXO family.
