Tonight Trip absolutely refused to take 1 bite of broccoli. Usually, I can manage to get a couple of bites of whatever veggie he's rejecting in him. Tonight after 10 minutes of bribing and persuading we finally got him to put 1 bite in his mouth which he chewed and gagged up when he tried to swallow it. I'm cool with that though. I just wanted him to atleast try it. Apparently, he truly doesn't like broccoli............... unless it's dipped in whipped cream! That can of Reddi-Wip that was sitting on the table was just way too tempting to not give it a try.

After dinner tonight the kids got a treat of chocolate pudding with Reddi-wip served in the special glasses that I ate pudding in as a kid. I think they liked it............ they don't usually wear bibs anymore but I thought they were necessary.

Since the weather was warmer again today, we opted to go take a walk at Lake Willastein instead of going to the gym. We pretended that Ruby was Dora and Trip was Boots and they chose which route we would take to get to the playground. Vamonos!!We went through the tunnel...........

Yesterday Trip had a bad cough and low-grade fever so I planned to keep him home from MDO today. When one stays home, they both do, because I don't think having one helps me much. Well, he seemed to feel fine on into the morning so it seemed a shame to stay at home all day during the 1 warm day of the week or maybe month. We went to the zoo with our new annual pass and had the best time. Almost every animal was out and about and seemed more than happy to let us get a good look.
Trip was way too into the train to turn around for a photo opp. Hopefully it will be open to ride next time.
When we started to think about moving Trip out of the crib, Rex immediately insisted that he absolutely had to have a racecar bed, much to my horror. At first I thought he wasn't totally serious but every bed I proposed to Rex, he shot down for not being as cool as a racecar bed. Apparently, Rex's childhood dream was to have one of these beds and this was his last shot at having one! I finally realized that this was something that Rex wasn't going to drop so we compromised by finding a used racecar toddler bed on Craig's List. Atleast he'll grow out of it in a few years! But, I think Trip's grin in the last pic. says that he likes it just a little bit. Thanks so much to D-Daddy for driving out to the boonies of Collierville, TN to pick it up for us..........Oh, Trip has done AWESOME in the transition out of the crib. He hasn't gotten out of his bed once. Even at nap time he just goes to sleep (knock on wood). Way to go, Trippy!
