Then it was getting too cool and rainy, that we loaded up and headed back to Ozark. By the time we got back to town, it wasn't raining anymore, so we decided to stop off at a new walking trail that we had never been to before. It starts down by my old work place, Heritage Chrysler Jeep. We got out and quickly discovered that the trail goes on and on and on. It is a VERY nice walking/biking trail. We are anxious to go back when we are prepared to walk that far. Here are some pictures from our walking trail adventure, which Adriana LOVED by the way.
For the last few days Paxton has been on the verge of rolling over. He is so close, you just want to help him. I have had the camera at the ready in case he rolled over. Well, last night it happened! And....I missed it! Adriana was in bath tub and needed to go to the bathroom, so I had to go in there and help her get out. I was in there for maybe 30 seconds, and came out and he had rolled over! So we got the camcorder out to record him doing it, and....the battery is dead. And sure enough, he rolled over again. So we set him back on his back to roll again, so I could go get the other camera, and start recording and.....NO rolling over. Of course! This first video is of him on the verge of rolling over. The second video is of him rolling over, but of course these batteries die right as he is rolling over, so its super short! What are the odds that both cameras would have dead batteries! RATS! Oh, well, I got it, even though its a short clip.
I LOVE to grill! There is not a better taste than having some grilled meat! I have grilled almost every nice day we have had thus far. We have had chicken, steak and kabobs. YUM! Last night we had my parents over for a last minute BBQ. We made Honey Teryiaki kabobs, twice baked potatoes and salad. It turned out really good! Here's to a WONDERFUL grillin' season!

We started out eating lunch at Chick-Fil-A.
Then it was off to Chuck E. Cheese to play some games. We had some tokens left over from the last time we went, so that saved us some money and Adriana had a blast! The child LOVES the barney ride the most. She would spend all the tokens on this ride, if I would let her. She was hugging it and kissing on it. It was kind of embarrassing, yet cute.
Next we were off to the movies. We stopped at the Dollar Tree to grab candy to sneak into the movies. We got to the store and she said, "Mommy, is this the movies". I thought that was cute. She was so excited to get to pick out her own candy. I'm kind of a stickler when it comes to sweets with her, so she thought it was so special to get candy. We went to the dollar theater to go see "The Princess and the Frog". Adriana isn't much for sitting through long movies, so I knew we wouldn't see the whole thing, but she stayed longer that I thought we would. We stayed for about an hour. She was getting real antsy and whispered to me, that she was ready to go home. So we left. We had a great day and I had fun just spending time with her. Hopefully we can have girls day again, soon.

We have been working on manners with Adriana. I'm so tired of her being so demanding. "Mom, I want some milk", "Mom, I want to watch a video" and so on, you get the picture. I always say, "what do you need to say" and her response is then always "please" or "thank you". I'm tired of having to remind her to ask nicely, so I have been starting to say, after a demand, "I'm sorry, I can't hear you". This normally results in her demand being voiced louder, and still missing the key words I'm looking for. So I'll tell her again, that I can't hear her. After about the third or forth time, she finally gets what I'm trying to get her to say, and then she will will ask in a nice way. Its cute, though, because sometimes I don't understand what she says, so I'll ask her "what?" and she'll say "please" real loud. Well, that's not why I'm asking what, its that I don't understand what she is saying. Its too funny though. We are starting to get better with the manners, slowly but surely.

Mr. Paxton sitting with the help from his daddy.
Yesterday Paxton had his 4 month check-up. I hate when he has to get shots. He is growing like a weed, of course, the boy doesn't miss a meal. He is in the 75-90th percentile for his weight (surprise, surprise) weighing in at 16.9lbs. He is in the 50-75th percentile on his height, at 25" tall.

On Saturday, we dropped the kids off at my parents house, and took them out on the town. We first took them to Bass Pro Shop. (We really couldn't think of anywhere else to go, so we settled on this.) We actually had a good time looking around. They have redone the place, so there is more to see now. We had a great time seeing all the live (and stuffed) animals. Here are some pictures of us at Bass Pro.
They have a live gator there now, although it
didn't look like alive to me, but it was cool to see.
Don't worry, Stephen will fight him off...
After we got done posing with all the animals at Bass Pro (which I'll have to say was the highlight of the trip there), we took them to Cheddars. I'm going to go out on a limb and say its our favorite restaurant here in Springfield. We took them there and stuffed ourselves, but had a great time. Next, we were off to bowling. We played 3 games. I won the first game, Stephen won the second game and Ryan won the last game. We had a great time trash talking each other and hanging out!
