My mighty girl is making lots of bug friends today. She rescued this giant roly-poly from the carport while I set up the food tables. #MightyPJ via Instagram

I miss this gorgeous hair! PJ says she wants to grow it out long enough for a ponytail again, so maybe in another year we'll have it back... via Instagram

PJ's 5 painted lady caterpillars have grown from teensy little squiggles to full size, and three are now up under the lid, with one hanging J-shaped, which means it's getting ready to form its chrysalis! We're excited. Thanks for this fun birthday present, Auntie @jujulegs! via Instagram

Brief moment of calm. Happy to support other parents' first date in a year...and happy we decided to stop at two kids! Haaa. No but seriously, we're doing fine. Two 1yos, an almost-3yo, and a 4yo are totally manageable. Totally. via Instagram

Max's first warm evening outside. I remember what a magical evening this was--PJ rode her balance bike wearing only a diaper, we saw a gorgeous rainbow arching over our house, and Max kicked cheerfully in his seat on the edge of the carport the whole time. It's a lot harder to wrangle him these days!! via Instagram

PJ & I took a picture of the nest by our front door for her preschool project, and just then, a baby bird leapt out! It seemed unhurt and ran away from me, but I caught it and took a pic before Paul put it back in the nest. I've heard that human smell does not actually scare birds away from their nests, so hopefully mommy bird will be back soon. PJ sure has a good story for class now! I emailed the account to her teachers! via Instagram

This dude loves riding in the bike trailer so much, he gets himself in there and tries to put on his helmet any chance he gets! via Instagram

Max has discovered Throwing Rocks, and he fancies himself an instant expert. He's still at it. We won't bring any rocks home, but we will be taking a few tomato and pepper plants with us! via Instagram
