As part of "The Continuing Adventures of Leandra's Happy Face," here's Jen and Leandra digging into Max's latest batch of homemade ice cream: fudge swirled peanut butter cup peanut butter ice cream. Yup, that's the good stuff.

More happy Leandra! Here she's enjoying some time with her little friend Miles. He's already a serious and adventurous eater, as he gnawing on some lamb's ear. Of the stuffed animal variety.

WOW!

This is the first time we've ever received a package of broccoli. Look at that dude. So buff.
