Newly minted roller coaster fiend #MightyPJ rode both wooden coasters at @knoebels! She rode Phoenix twice, once with each parent, and Twister we rode in the front seat! Quoth PJ: "THAT! WAS! AWESOOOOOME!!" via Instagram http://ift.tt/2uTEhwZ

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

New Ana dress from my friend's closet purge! I had to hem it by like 3" which is why never bought one directly. This one has grey trim on the sleeves and neck, so I just cut off the bottom and serged the edge with grey thread.

Max wants everyone to know the building behind us is "bwoke! Bwoke!" We saw (and heard!) the old Highmark building be imploded! It was really cool. Also saw lots of quadcopter drones. Worth getting up early on a Saturday! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2rrNHmo
