Spring in full bloom outside the Bloomfield Kender's house.
A trip to Boss Baby with Aiden.
And Sonia.  A story about a kid who is not happy about getting a new sibling - this seems planned but was not, and had Jess panicking for the first half hour of the movie.
Some family time with Jess and Tio Greg.
And the night wrapped up with some quality time with Francoise aka Tante.

Madd Max Takes A Weekend Trip

Well, just Jess did.  Mimi got the entire family together under the guise of meeting the new baby, who was still cooking a day past it's due date in Aunt Tara.
After a quick nap, Uncle Wills arrived and he, Jess, Mimi and Dozee headed to their old preschool.
Where there was a Pasta Throwdown featuring a sample pasta from 15 local restaurants.
Penne ala Vodka, served with a Jersey accent. Heaven.
Then it was down to Bloomfield to paint a tea set with Sonia.
And observe some Pokemon between Uncle Ant and Aiden.

Madd Max Makes The Walk Back

Down the 4 alleys from Taisie's to Home.
BTW Earlier today, Maddie made her first trip sans adults but with Fiona from Home to Taisie's.  This was mostly due to taking advantage of all the activity, but made Maddie thrilled and determined to do it again.  Her argument in trying to get approval for herself, Ellie and Elizabeth to walk alone, "Moooom, you have three aggressive girls who can handle it!"
Brunch under the finished pergola with Scott and Auntie Jamie.
At the end of the party, there was also a guest appearance by Brian and Alison.
Happy Easter!
