Good Weekend!

We had a pretty good weekend here. On Saturday we took the boys out to dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse. They were both very good and Cooper only cried a little when I got up to go to the bathroom at the end of the meal. Sigh, maybe I should start wearing diapers like they do? Oh well. After that we drove back to Catonsville to take the kids to the playground. Once again that pesky bladder got in the way and we made a quick pit stop back home for a potty break. We were only going to be a minute so we left the kids strapped in the car. Matt went first and Cooper was a little whiney and not happy, but then it was my turn and Cooper started crying hysterically! I rushed and fully expected him to still be crying when I came back out of the house. Nope, his daddy had cleverly handed him a copy of Consumer Reports that was sitting in the car, and Cooper was very happily flipping through it like it was the best thing he had ever seen. Like father, like son, that is all I have to say. LOL! So we finally made it to the playground and the kids both had a great time. Cooper was too busy running around and going down all the slides to get obsessed with the swing, yay! Quinn did a really good job climbing up the steps to one of the smaller slides and sliding down all by himself. I was really proud of him :)

Today Matt put together a leftover Christmas present that was waiting for better weather. I got a great deal on this Radio Flyer tricycle that the parent can steer until the kid learns. I wasn't sure either boy would like it, but it was too good a deal to turn down. Well, Cooper loves it! We were all still in our pajamas so we haven't taken it outside yet, but Cooper has rode it round and round our living room/dining room/kitchen circle. He figured out right away to put his feet on the pedals and he has actually been pedaling on his own a little! He loves to ring the little bell that it came with and put toys in the storage bin in the back. He sat on that thing all night long, even when it wasn't moving! I have to keep telling him it is a bike because he keeps saying "horses", I guess it is a little similar but not really :) Quinn liked it too for the split second Cooper let him ride it. He isn't into the pedals though.
