Madd Max Celebrate 11 Years

Of their parents' marriage by staying at home while Sam and Jess went to dinner and to see Ira Glass perform.

Slappy Does Dream Dinners

Which is a place where you prep meals for storage in the freezer.  Maddie was very proud, and said, "Mom, this is the first time I have ever helped you "make" dinner. (Quotes added by Jess and meant for Jess' dinner making skills, not Maddie's fine work.)

Madd Max Still Has Teefers And The Ring Light

Recently, Maddie started talking about when Sam took pix of her with the ring light.  She then decided it would be a good idea for Sam to take shots of her now that she has her adult teeth.  Sam agreed.
5 1/2 Years Ago.
 When Max heard about this, he wanted in on the action, even though his teeth remain the same.
4 1/2 Years Ago.

Madd Max Have A Sleepover

Maddie has a jar from Girl Scouts, where eveytime she does something especially helpful, she places a stone in said jar.  When the jar is full, she gets to pick a special activity.  She picked a sleepover with Ellie.  And then asked everyday, multiple times a day, for 2 weeks when that sleepover would come.
 To make the evening more special, Jess pulled a Mimi and took them to a McDonalds with a play space where they stayed for just under 2 hours.
Pre-bedtime stories tea time.
And bedtime - all 3 were actually out by 9:30, and then up at 5:45.

The Scrapper Has A Bday Party

Since Max is no longer in preschool, he celebrated his birthday party early (invites were handed out while he was still in school) to be able to have all his friends there.
It was another Pump It Up party with a pirate theme.

Madd Max Start Camp

Jess has always remembered summer as being down at the Leonia pool.  When she found out that the YMCA offered a summer camp where there was swimming twice a week, she was sold.  Here are the 2 on the morning of their first day.  So far - they totally dig it.

Madd Max Head To Renee's 40th

 Where Darth Vader, Obi Wan, Luke and Leia also came to join.
 And taught the adults a little fencing.
 And the kids a little jedi-ing.
 Jess' mom was on the fencing team in college.  Here is Jess channeling her inner Mimi.
The finale - a Marilyn Monroe-ish birthday song rendition by Darth.
