Mini Vacation

 Stephen took vacation days Thursday (the 5th) and Friday (the 6th). We went up to Branson, MO on Friday morning. We checked into the condo and then went shopping at the outlet mall. When we started getting hungry we went to Lambert's: Home of the Throwed Rolls about 45 min north of Branson. (If you haven't been there, you should go. They throw rolls to you when you want one!) Beckham loves food and he will whine if people are eating around him and he doesn't get to. So, I fed him pieces of banana while we were eating.

On Saturday morning while we were eating breakfast Beckham decided he didn't want to stay in one place. He started scooting backwards. He started where the shoe is, then went to the bags and got his toy and continued moving backwards. I'm not sure if I'm ready for him to crawl!

 After breakfast we made our way to St. Louis. We were able to see the arc. It is amazing!

We went to a Cardinals game. This is a pic of the arc from the stadium. 
It was extremely hot (106 degrees!). Beckham and I had to find some fans for a little bit, but he did pretty good!

After the game we were able to go to the top of the arc. 630 ft up!

Stephen didn't like it so much...but he did look out the window.

 We had dinner with Meagan and Jaron Banks while we were there. Then, we started our drive back to Branson. We didn't get back until almost 2 am! Sunday morning we drove home. It was nice to get away for a couple of days!

4th of July

We enjoyed the Fourth of July! We went down to Fayetteville and went to the lake with my family. I was worried Beckham would cry and be miserable for most of the day with having to wear a life jacket. Well, I was so wrong! He loved being at the lake!
 He enjoyed the ride on the boat
 He LOVED being in the water
 He got to take a nap
And to top it all off he enjoyed the fireworks that night!

I would say it was a great 4th!

Checking out

Last week I was super sick for 4-5 days! My temp got up to 104! I'll just say it is SOOO nice to be able to eat real food again! 
Stephen is taking the rest of the week off and we are checking out for the weekend. We are going to Branson, MO.  When we get back I will update a little more about Beckham. He is getting so big!
Look at that cute face!
Have a great 4th!
