My two favorite goobers. I just casually told PJ to start thinking about not sucking her thumb any more; she got quite upset and tearfully informed me, "I never am going to think about not sucking my thumb! I NEVER AM!!" #PJsays #PJandMax via Instagram http://ift.tt/2oVaDtn

Fish Tacos for our 2nd night of #blueapron! Tonight, both kids scarfed down a taco each and asked for seconds. Last night wasn't such a hit, but that's ok because we had another adult to feed. Next week we're trying 3 2-person meals, so we'll supplement to share with the kids. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2oWQxh9

Max's Easter vest! I'll make the button holes & sew the buttons once I make PJ's matching dress so I only have to change the sewing machine foot once. Can't wait to make more vests, this was a fun project! via Instagram http://ift.tt/2peB88X

I finally upgraded from the mountain bike I got for Christmas when I was ten! Just rode this beauty home from @holmescycling and I am in love. The basket on the back easily unclips from the rack and becomes a shopping basket with a handle. I feel SO cool. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2nibD6y

Max is more interested in coloring than his sister ever has been. He first makes a little scribble, points to it, and says, "name! Name!" Then I help him write "MAX" #MightyMax via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ntJqbW

I haven't completely replaced store-bought mayo yet, but I find making a batch of home-made mayo to be so satisfying! And it tastes sooo good! This batch has lime instead of lemon juice, and as usual a bit extra mustard powder, so it's delightfully tangy. Try it if you never have! http://ift.tt/20Wpk7A via Instagram http://ift.tt/2m5ATPw
