It's hard to believe that we have gone a year without our nephew and cousin Max. We felt a huge hole in our family whenever we were together over the past year. We decided last year that we wanted to celebrate Max's life and legacy each year around the time of his birthday with "Max's Beach Day," doing the things that Max loved to do. This year the kids wrote notes to Max and tied them to balloons and sent them up to Heaven for Max. But Max would have loved the lego building contest (where everyone was a winner of course!) and the "minute to win it" games. We miss him dearly.
