The smiling 7 year old.
At her venue of choice - the roller rink.
But also her cousin and Aunt.
Madd, Lilly and Lucy were the only 3 guests who were able to skate unassisted.
Maddie had a unique way of staying balanced, which involved her leaning way forward and spreading her legs very wide. The entire look seemed like constant, awkward work, enough so that a stranger came up to Jess to tell her how proud she was of that little girl who would just not give up.
Max was able to skate unassisted half the time - the first half of the party he was convinced he needed the help. The second half he was skating like a pro.
A lot of the moms loved the throwback to middle school.
The hokey pokey.

Well, Jess did. To celebrate Kearsley's 40th birthday with her 2 friends, Megan and Layla.
There was a lot of this.
Along with some nightlife, some good food and shows, and some fine company.
Back at the ranch, Aunt Rachel and Gwen arrived and settled in with the new 3D TV.

This girl loves the water.
Sam and T and T join in.
Then back to the cute cottage we stayed in.

And it makes their parents elated, as shown here in front of their new dishwasher, straight from John and Erin's old kitchen.
Our old dishwasher was as loud as truck, didn't work great and had to be closed with the force of a middle school wrestler.
And yes, we are aware this is something 30+ year-olds get excited over.

This week, Toby and Taisie picked the kids up after school as our normal babysitter was in rehearsals. Which was awesome.
The kids got to come home to projects.
Here's a print out Taisie prepped for their butterfly project.
Sam and Jess got to come home to homemade dinners.
