Daddy's Hat

Paxton found much entertainment in his Daddy's hat yesterday!
Josh would say, "Hey that's my hat!" and try to grab it. Then Paxton would yell, "Mines!" And run away! Then about a minute later he would run back to repeat it all over again. The picture on the right is of Paxton tattling to me. He ran up to me and said, "Mama, Daddy take-a my hat. uh uh, mines!" You can see the genuine concern on his face. I love how little kids can be so easily entertained & they offer much entertainment for us as well.

Happy 4th Birthday Versii!

May 23, 2011
Happy 4th Birthday Versii!
It's hard to believe he is 4 now.
One more year and he'll be in school!

Versii admiring all his new birthday trucks.
(What's funny is, this year we let the boys pick out their own birthday gifts and yet Versii was still surprised when he opened them today.)
The garbage truck is the 4th garbage truck in his collection. Loves them for some reason! His favorite book is called "I Stink!" A book about, what else? A garbage truck.

Versii picked out mini chocolate cupcakes, sugar cookies & brownies for his birthday!

He also received a card & money from Great Grandma.
In it, she talked about the "Happy Clock" (a clock Versii dubbed the "Happy Clock", one that plays music & the face moves every hour) ---Versii put his hand up to his ear and said, "Hey I think I hear that happy clock!"

Birthday Measurements: Versii is 43.25 inches tall now and weighs 39 lbs.
He's grown 3 and 1/2 inches this past year!

Inflatable Kingdom

May 21, 2011 - Mom & I took the boys out to Inflatable Kingdom for their birthdays!
(Kaden's birthday: yesterday, Versii's: Monday, & Paxton: next Tuesday)
They only had about an hour of playtime, as we hid terrible traffic on our way and
Versii fell asleep in the car, just a few minutes before we arrived.
But as soon as we woke him up & said, "We're here!" --He just hopped out of the car as wide awake can be. And they had a blast!
Jump! Bounce! Fall! Jump again!

Paxton in Wacky World. He needed help to climb this slide.
One time I watched him run in & then about the time he should have come back out, he didn't. I went in after him and he had somehow managed to make it up & down one slide, then he was stuck in between. When he saw me come down the slide, he just hugged me tight and said, "Thank you Mama." So happy to be saved!
The "Fire Truck" slide. The boys favorite! Around, up, down. Repeat! Over & over again! One of the employees asked me, "How do you keep them entertained at home? Those boys are running like they're running a marathon. Up, down, around! They never stop!" ---Tell me about it! :)

Right: Paxton making his way up to the top of the fire truck slide. He's such a determined kid! When he wants something, he does not stop trying to get it.
He must have climbed that slide about 20 times, by himself!
