Day 140 - Potty Training, Park & Party...

Julianne got her first package of pull-ups and pack of Minnie Mouse underwear today...

She might have been a little proud :o)

A certain big sister was eager to help her stay hydrated so she could have lots of opportunities to use the potty :o) Haha!

Our first day of potty training went pretty well :o) We still have a ways to go...but we are definitely on the right track :o)

This afternoon was BEAUTIFUL so we put the potty training plans on hold and met up with some friends at the park.

Check out those sweet little dimples!

Sophie Le is pretty small for her age and so is Julianne. A HUGE advantage of their small size...being able to share a swing :o)

Swinging with your sister...pure delight!

My little girl...wait, what the heck...isn't she too little for this high slide? Oh well, too late! It was another proud moment for my little baby.

All three girls LOVED the huge tunnel! They would have probably stayed in their all day squealing :o)

The girls watching the geese swim by...I LOVE when the girls all sit still AND sit together...it doesn't happen often :o)

I just LOVE how Hillary Ashton's hair get sun kissed in the summer...it is so pretty :o)

Two kids who know what to do when a camera is pointed at them :o) Haha! We met this sweet family when they were in process to adopt Ben and we were in process to adopt Sophie Le :o)

Julianne can do anything the big kids do...or at least she thinks she can :o)
DSC09053
This is Liam, Ben's little brother. I am telling you, the cuteness factor of this family is unbelievable :o)

The girls running/dancing/singing/squealing on the stage...

When Sophie Le gets to kindergarten, she is going to know all the cool playground songs :o) This one is about a penguin polka...haha!

Tricia and the army of kids on a mission for rocks to throw in the lake...

Me and three of my babies...

Sophie Le didn't want to have her picture taken...If Sophie Le doesn't want to do something, she freezes up...once she does this, there is nothing you can do to thaw her out :o) Believe me, I have tried everything...Haha! She has been this way since she was a baby...gotta pick your battles...this is not one I have chosen to fight in a VERY long time...once she get this look in her eye...you might as well throw in the towel...you will not win.

We also got to see Bex and his mama, but some how I didn't get any pictures of them :o(

The girls had a blast at the park. They played hard and got sweaty and a little muddy...which is normally fine, but I had to drive Hillary Ashton straight to a pajama birthday party. I am sure if anyone was watching, we were quite the spectacle...I pretty much bathed her with wet wipes in the car...haha! I don't think I will be able to get away with this type of behavior much longer...Hillary Ashton was very concerned someone might be watching :o)

The pajama party was perfect...it was like a slumber party...but it only lasted a couple hours :o) We have yet to have a sleep over for Hillary Ashton and I am not sure I am ready...haha! While Hillary Ashton was at the party, we had dinner at Chili's. Yum!

We had a great time! Love that park. We want you all to come to Conway next time and check out our secret "park"! The girls will love it. Have a good weekend.

You got that right! That is one proud look on Julianne's face when she is sporting those Minnie Mouse undies!

I can't believe Julianne is already potty training! I tried with Luke a few months ago, and we got nowhere! I had to stop and will try again in another month! That has to be the most frustrating thing for me as a parent! The pictures are so sweet of the girls ! I cannot get over Julianne's hair! Too precious! We miss you all so very much!
