Inking up the roller

Rosy-cheeked Max

Max goes crawling

Teething ring (not pictured - two teeth!)

Max modeling his sweater pants

Out at Coyote Hills

Taking a short break

Marna's new hat

The assembled crowd

Lots of Eckels

Happy Max

Chomping on the fancy nesting bowls

Group shot #1

Group shot #2

Max testing the new Duplo

Farm stuff

The whole crew

Max hops up for a bit

Max, steering clear of the Feud

Locked up

Chomping on cereal

Ruth and Max go to work


Experimenting with the new train gear

Sitting down for the meal

Getting suspicious

Grab bag, in progress

Max, android inspector

The crew, arrayed as they should be

Everyone, including those now partially hidden

Max, stocking-deliverer

Unpacking the loot

The whole gang

The whole gang, one with a fun hat

Parceling out the next batch of cookies

Max in some ill-fitting gloves

Pink and green

Fun with car scraping

Prepping to open stockings

The knight's in your face

The full crew

Apologizing for dis-arming the monkey

Synchronized unwrapping

Watch out, Ruth!

Masterminds at work and play

Max and Marna

Ruth chomps into an apple

An array of puppets

Max as center of attention

Max gets a Boogie Board too

Separating the foam bits

From the other end of the tables

Brewing up some trouble

And back to a mellower disposition

Max puts his new camera to use

The whole gang

Photo attack

Storytime for Max

Chowing at Culver's

Ruth and Max take charge

Out on the deck

Ruth and Max

New lion necklaces

The whole gang

Getting rowdy

Cooking up something tasty


Max inspecting the apparatus

Rounding the bend

Whipping around

Max getting pinned to the back of his seat

Getting dizzy

Seven out of eight looking at the camera isn't too bad

Layering on the paint to spin

Finishing the masterpiece

Approaching nap time

Gathered in the rental house

Pizza dinner

Getting a little saucy

The rowdies one row back

Under the bean

Post-dinner concert

Fully choreographed

Time to stop singing apparently

Wading off Coronado

Partial shading

Max standing (assisted)

The whole lineup

Ever so slightly goofier

Checking out the fancy 3D printer

Max and the obelisk

Playing in the dorm bed

Sprinting ahead

In the blazing sun

Near our turn-around point

Slightly less sunny

Hot but happy kids

Big smile from Max

A little sweaty

Finishing the march

Max is still napping

Ending almost in Mexico after starting in Canada

Triumphant finish

Dance party at the park

Cuddling with the bears

Squashing a penny

Mostly happy Max

Ready to chow down

Prepped to chomp

Everybody lined up

Gathered in the living room

So relaxed

Finished eating


On board

A rare photo of Max looking at the camera

No more photos

Max, to the max


Dark glasses

Over by the fire pit

Max on the move

Cruising in

Cutting through

Take 1

Take 2

Take 3

Take 4

Zooming away

Rounding the bend

Wild man Max

Being sulky

Moody decorating

Max approves

Accumulating finished cookies

Shared screen time

The stroller wranglers

Sole stroller swinger

Discrete peanut deliverer

Present intermission

Max being a big kid

The whole gang

Two seconds later

Delivering to Opa

Coming through!

Relaxing in a family pile

Mr Max

Collaborative circuit building

Inspecting the components

On the playground, shortly after de-hatting

Time to head home

Yard work, post-storm

Big shovel

Working the chopsticks

Sitting down for some serious reading

More books

The whole gang

North base

Enjoying the shade


Jenga tower collapse

Group photo

Group photo

Play time

The photographer has been discovered

Testing the spot for the group shot

The whole gang

Just a touch silly

Playing the bubble game

Max with his nail polished cheek


Ready to hop

Carefully mointoring the situation

Let the rampus begin

The largest dinner of the gathering

The full group

Happy Max
