I don't care for Babybel, and my beloved @traderjoes Brie Bites are not easily available to me (come to the Harrisburg area PLEEEEASE?) so when I spotted these @belgioiosocheese snack bites at the grocery store, I had to try them! A little better than Babybel, but still can't hold a candle to my true love Brie Bites. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2yvFu32

I finally got access to PJ's kindergarten photo proofs, and then @hannahhardatwork made it 100x more awesome. The internet is such a magical place. #lasers #90s 😂🤩😍 via Instagram http://ift.tt/2xNbcJo

We've been waiting for a while now, but the dump truck has arrived to fill in this big hole in our street! Max let himself out of the house this morning to watch the digging, and took a few years off the end of Daddy's life when Paul couldn't find him!! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2wHsz9H

The kids and I made granola bars this evening! We mixed up dates, cashews, pecans, unsweetened coconut flakes, oats, and @bobsredmill seven grain; tossed that with a mix of coconut oil, egg whites, and honey; pressed it together and baked it. It's a little too crumbly, so I'll add another egg white to the next batch. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2vZ6W5h

Trying a packed lunch for PJ for the first time tomorrow. She & Daddy made black bean hummus at her request, which is nestled with carrot chips; and for her jam & cheese sandwich, she wanted to build it herself. Completed with a banana and some chocolate milk... We'll see how she does! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2vGGl0D

We hiked downstream, down a biiiiig stairway in the rock, back upstream to the Whirlpool, then all the way back and now we're above the Whirlpool! About to bike a few miles back to our room to get ready for dinner. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2wtQCft

From earlier this afternoon--we biked from our Airbnb to Niagara state park on the American side, MUCH faster than we could have driven. Now we are at the Whirlpool Park, still on the American side because there was a paved bike trail the whole way here! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ePxoYv

It's actually happening! Five children are asleep in our three bedrooms, and we're playing Catan with the Levs! I just won in what is almost certainly the quickest game of Catan I've ever played. Only one seven was rolled the entire game, and I had two cities within three rounds. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2vYSc9w

Tonight we tried a dragon fruit for dessert! I love how intensely pink it is, and startlingly white inside. It reminds me of kiwi (texture with the seeds) and the flavor is a bit like jicama but waterier with just enough sweetness. Max and I really like it; Daddy and PJ are indifferent. (Pictured are the half we already finished, and the second half Max and I are currently sharing. We opted to simply slice in half and eat with a spoon. No pit, and the seeds are pleasantly crunchy just like in a kiwi!) via Instagram http://ift.tt/2v8bRmy

First beach day is practically perfect in every way! Fabulous weather, a great sand bar and tide pool for kids to play in, and tons of easy-to-catch sand crabs. Just watched lunch disappear into two hungry kid bellies! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2vYHsph

Proof that baby PJ does resemble baby Max! I wish we'd bathed Max in a Nawakwa bus bin three years ago so we had this pic of both kids!! We all had a lovely evening yesterday at camp for the pyrotechnics display. I left my phone in the car, but I will post some pics from the amazing @bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.bang next week! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2tQ0uQH

PJ made this on her own, no help from us. We heard her sounding our words and it was the cutest thing ever. She says she learned how to spell "happy" at VBS. "HAPPY PJ MAX WE LOVE YOU MOMMY <3 DADDY" via Instagram http://ift.tt/2t3sizA
