We brought Maria with us to help with the kids and also to give her a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to the US. She had never even been out of the Asuncion area, so it was a HUGE change for her. The first thing she noticed was how clean the streets were. Everything was a new experience for her, from flying, driving on a highway for the first time, different foods, and rest and relaxation! She loved it, although she missed her family.
We had such a good time with Jeff, Carolyn, Aubrey, Kelsie, Savannah and Bryce. It is fun to hang out with the girls now and talk about their teenage drama! I love it! And they are hilarious. And Bryce pretty much walks on water in Kinley's eyes.
We also got to see Cami and Pat while we were there, which is always a good time! She kept calling me Angelina because I brought my nanny with me! She never misses out on a opportunity to make fun! And that is why we love her!
Then it was off to Tulsa with Bapa. Maria freaked out in the middle of the flight and woke me up because my dad had fallen asleep! I had to try to explain that it wasnt like driving a car, and that it was okay for him to snooze for a minute!

Our favorite "Baby Nolan" came to play one day and the boys had a gentleman's tea party and surfed the net for awhile.
|Here is a partial shot of Mimi. Proof she was here|
Our suave guy turns 9 months! He is so handsome, if I do say so myself!
Mimi and Pops got Kinley this awesome basketball hoop and some cars for Turner. Thanks!!
But the GREATEST thing that July brought (for me!!) was POTTY TRAINING! Thanks to my friend Brooke for sending me the 3 Day Potty Training guide! It was not pretty. It was not easy. But it is done!!!!!! This is what she looked like for 3 days. She looooooves her Tinkerbell undies! We are so proud of her.
