First of all, the ants will not hurt you or yours. And neither will a professional exterminator.
You can try the borax mixed with honey thing, put small amounts in bottlecaps and place them where the ants will find them and the kids won't.
If the ants are really bad, it's best to go with a pro. Get a local guy and skip the biggies. You want someone that doesn't insist on a contract.
I would give it a week or so and see if it continues. Sometimes these things are weather related and go away on their own. Except for the dishwasher problem, that might continue....
