Burley, Blue Cheese and Bunny Hops

I'm still cameraless. Hopefully I'll find it under a pile of clean laundry somewhere.

Emmett ate "rabbit food" for the first time! For those of you who weren't at our dinner table tonight (which would be all of you excluding Eric) that is what Eric called our salad. These magical words made all the difference in the perception of our 2 year old son as he gazed at the leafy greens on his plate. Don't get my wrong, we've put them on his plate numerous times, this is just the first time he didn't gag on them. All it took was a clever name, a few little bunny hops out of Mom and Dad after eating our "rabbit food" and our son devoured his serving of "mixed spring greens" and even asked for seconds!
Our son has quite a refined palate (like his daddy). You'll never guess what sort of dressing he cheese! He likes blue cheese (over any other salad dressing), coffee (decaf of course), mustard (over ketchup), gorgonzola and feta cheeses, to name a few. It's really quite cute! I've asked Eric to do a guest blog on this subject, I think it would be pretty funny. We'll see if he agrees!
After over a year of considering and missed good deals on Craigslist we finally purchased a Burley bike trailer. The kids seemed to really enjoy their ride to the park as they snuggled "in neen ner" (in there) together. Now we just have to get our bikes up and running!

I am so glad you got a burley! They work so well with 2 for quite awhile. I see you are experimenting with the lay out. I think I like to read better. Hope you find your camera soon!
