With some fine ice cream cake.

Much like her mom with Ellie's mom over 30 years ago.

The Scrapper Names His First Born

He feels this will work equally as well for a boy and a girl.

The Scrapper Keeps On Bleevin

Maybe one of Jess' favorite phonetic spellings.

Madd Max Enjoy Rocket Camp

Jess' favorite parts:
Hanging with Sam by the tent.
Watching Maddie read while cuddling in the sleeping bag, listening to the wind whip the tent around.
Not pictured, a morning Max climbing into Sam and Jess' sleeping bag for morning hugs.
Our home base.

Madd Max Head To Boy Scout Rocket Camp

 Where their favorite thing to do was hang in the tent with new friends.
 Jess got them out to do a little hiking.
Where Madd stopped regularly to enjoy the views, announcing, "Mom, I'm stopping because I never get to see views like this."
And the rocket academy part - they shot about 100 feet in the air.
Followed by some BB guns.
Line 'em up.

Madd Max Celebrate Double Digits

But first, a stop at the Leonhardt home to check out construction. 
Then birthday pizza.
For the 10-year-old birthday girl.
Followed by some impressive rainbow cake.

Madd Max Have A Dual Playdate

 Waiting is such sweet sorrow.
 And finally, a little Evan and Jackson.
Oh, yeah.

Madd Max Hits Up Fiona's Bday Party

Pump It Up all the way!

Slappy Pets The Cat

Super thrilled he will tolerate her - even briefly.

The Scrapper Has An Outdoor Boy Scout Activity

A hiking activity where they cleared trash from the trail.
It was unexpectedly raining so some trash bags became dual purpose.
Pretty mountains.

Slappy Has A Powder Puff Derby

Stakes are high. 
(Some of you may recall when everything changed for Sam.)
How to weigh down a snail.
 The heats.  Turbo nabbed 2nd place all 4.
As a side note, as Maddie and Sam headed off to the weigh in, Jess told her how cool her car was.  She happily replied, "And I didn't have to do anything!"  Sam and Jess, through their laughter, tried to explain that perhaps she would not want to say that exactly when they got to the Derby.

Slappy Has A Birthday Party

At Castle Park for mini-golf.
Waiting for the arrival of guests with her grandparents.
The guests.
At school, Maddie had a tendency to hang with the boys more often then with the girls.  
The boys.
The cake.
The golf.
When she does hang with the girls, it's with her Girl Scout girls.
Or these girls.
And this sassy one.
Good times with good friends.
