Madd Max Heads Home

With a stop at In-n-Out, of course.
And at home, a face full of Clara for Uncle Ant.

Madd Max Have Day 2 At Legoland

Locked up.
And a go at the apple fries.
She didn't have any, but didn't seem to mind.
The fam also hit up the Waterpark even though it was a little cold and a little overcast.  The wave pool and lazy river were big hits.

Madd Max Have A Legoland Evening

A very pleased Sonia with her cup of hot cocoa.
Dance party.
Movie in the pool.
Drinks by the pool.

Madd Max Head To Legoland

Aiden and Sonia's first go at the disco elevator.
Pirate Clara.
Spinning.
Watching spinning.
The cousins who insisted on riding rides sans parents, except when Sonia was too small to go it with kids alone.
Uncle Ant by the lego version of his Oculus.
Boys on rides.
Boys on more rides.
Girls on rides.

Madd Max Gets To Hang With Clara

That Clara!
Who gave her parents a hug goodbye before they headed out to dinner.
Meanwhile, Sam finished up his first try at bacon bread, which was as good as it sounds.
That Clara.
Who socialized with Steve and Williams' in the backyard like a pro.

Madd Max Take The Kenders To The Pool

For some tossing.
Which turned out to be not allowed, but was fun while it lasted.
Cousin hang time.

Madd Max Enjoys The Bloomfield Kenders

In Burbank!
First, there was coloring.
Then rice krispie making.
And the first of many family dinners.

Madd Max Take A Hike Up Blackcap Mountain

But first, Max's favorite activity of Chocorua, egg gathering.
 The eventful start of the hike where the kids ate lunch in the parking lot.
 Up the mountain.
 Which ended in these cool granite rocks.
 NH fam.
And a last, lovely evening on the porch.
Followed by a family movie in the living room.

Madd Max Gets Bean Boozled

Where you could either end up with a jellybean that is delicious or disgusting.

The appeal in this confounds Jess, and it clearly wore out for them as well.  The kids never made it through the entire box.

Madd Max Has A Rainy Day

Which meant a planned trip to Black's, a local toy store, to find some goodies (one of Max's birthday presents).
Maddie got to enjoy it as well, as did Sam and Jess who got to read on the rainy sleeping porch for hours.
 Back at home, painting in the studio.
Total focus.
 And homemade hot cocoa.

Madd Max Hit The Lake

 Jess' first time canoeing across the entire lake in over a decade.
It's a family affair.
 The bridge to get over the lake and through the woods.
 The loon family, not entirely shown, had 2 parents and one baby.
 Sparklers (there were also ground flowers).
And the requisite toad.

Madd Max Heads To Monkey Trunks

 Max just made the reach height, moving him off of the kid course.
 Just a taste of some of the terror Jess felt - there's Sam and Max.  It got better as the fam went along, but would not rank in Jess' world as "fun."
 Taisie and Dozee watch from below (Dozee had to leave shortly after because he found it too stressful).
 Max working the ropes.
 Maddie doing her favorite part - zip-lining.
Maddie and Sam did the final Extreme Course which took them through the woods in the back, and very much pleased Maddie with 3 additional zip lines.
