Brian hit up Albany's electronics recycling day.
Rob raised the bar for being a cool parent.

Lily had some "omfg... so good" red velvet birthday cake at Bucca di Beppo.
Mr. Dave tried Price Chopper's pre-cooked bacon. Yep, it's bacon. That comes already-cooked.
And Laura found a pineapple... just a little bit out of place.
