Are you ready for this

Okay, I know it has been awhile since I last posted, so I thought I would catch you all up with like fifty new posts. Not really fifty but there are a lot. So I hope you enjoy them.

This post is of my sweet chubby little Audrey. She is almost three months old and absolutely adorable.
So I was blowing on her little belly today and she started giggling! It is the most adorable sound I had to post both of the videos that my Mom helped me take. She is such a happy baby. We just love her to death!

Sisters!

I am so happy to have my two girls. I love them to pieces and I am so glad Elle loves her baby sister.
Here are just a few cute pictures of them.






Blessing

We blessed little Audrey a few weeks ago. It was such a beautiful special day. Thank you to all our family and friends for sharing it with us.

Audrey's announcement

Our new family.
Notice who Audrey is looking at, she can't get enough of her big sister.

What an angel


Daddy and Audrey Bear

I can't believe how much we love our girls. They are both so sweet and really good. We are one lucky Mom and Dad!

Stewart Falls

Our first outing with little Audrey bear! We decided a little hike would be fun. So we chose Stewart Falls. It was gorgeous. The weather was perfect and Elle had such a blast.

Just notice how clean Elle was at the beginning.


Elle stopping to take a picture. Notice the dirt slowly climbing up her legs.

Then she took off running again. She did so great. She walked (ran) the whole way by herself. She is just so tough!

Elle walking in the freezing cold water. Notice her five o'clock shadow, ya, that is dirt. How she got this dirty I don't know. Good thing she had fun.

Smith Family Reunion

So this summer was the first annual Smith Family Reunion. So we went up to Antelope Island. It was the first time Nate and I had ever been there. It was so much fun. There were so many little activities to do, yummy food, and just plain old fun with the family!

It was very cool seeing all the buffalo.

Just a dang cute picture of a dang cute girl.

Yet another family picture.

This is Elle with her Great Uncle Mark, playing a little ball. One of the fun activities going on.
It was such a fun day we can't wait until next year.

4th of July


We had a great Fourth of July! This is one of my favorite holidays.

Elle looking so cute dancing around with her sparklers!

It was such a great day.

Hogle Zoo

We had to make a trip up to the zoo of course. We had such a good time with Grammy and Bethy. This was one of the best times I have ever been. We saw so many of the animals up close and walking around.

Here is Elle with her new kitty.

Elle's favorite part of the zoo.

She is just so cute. She loved watching the crazy monkeys.

The classic zoo picture. You always have to get one drinking from the lions mouth.

Cabin

We spent another fun weekend up at the cabin with Lisa and Kimball, Jason and Sasha, and the kids. We ate lots of great food(as usual) and got to relax and play.

Elle roasting a yummy looking marshmallow.

Elle devouring that yummy marshmallow in an even yummier s'more.

Nate took Elle fishing for the first time and she caught a fish! It was so cute. She was very excited.

Even though it is so beautiful up there, we still love all the extra naps you get to take!


Another fun thing, Kimball invested in the game, Guitar Hero. As you will see we have some major rock stars on our hands.

That is one cute girl band.

She sure loves to rock out to a little Metallica!

It may look like Nate was teaching Elle but I think it might be the other was around.








Swimming Lessons

Alright, you are on the last new post.

So early this summer Elle was able to take swimming lessons. Vernal has this amazing indoor pool. She loved swimming every day except the last for some reason, but she did great.

Swimming with her face under the water.

Cutest back float I have ever seen, that's for sure.

video

The high light of the entire process was her jumping off the diving board, (with a little assistance) to her teacher waiting in the pool. Then her sweet attempt to swim back to the wall with a life vest on that was bigger than she was. I think she meant to do the back stroke all the way to the wall. So cute, and funny!

Well, congratulations, you are now up to date with the Thomas Family!

Audrey Michele Thomas

She is finally here!
After a few weeks of being sent to the hospital almost every other day for hours of monitoring because of my blood pressure, they finally decided to induce me at 38 weeks!
We had our sweet little Audrey on July 21st!
She weighed 6 pounds 13 ounces.
She was 18 1/2 inches long.
She is gorgeous!

Our new little family of four!

We have only been home for a few days but she is already an incredible sleeper.

The cutest big sister ever!
Elle loved visiting the hospital and has been so great with Audrey so far.
She is such a good girl.

Getting ready to take our cute little "Chubbers" home.
Look at that double chin, so cute.

Summer Fun

We have done lots of fun little things this past month.

Elle and I spent a week out in Orem without our main man, Nate. We missed him so much. Elle decided that when Daddy got back we all needed to go on a date together. She decided all by herself that we should go to Cafe Rio for dinner and then go bowling.

Elle is a very good and independent bowler.
She wouldn't let us help her carry her ball or anything.
She is just so cute.

video

After almost every one of her turns, this was her reaction when her ball hit the pins.
It was so funny!


On Memorial Day we went to the cemetery with Nate's Mom and Diane

Our little fam in front of Nate's Dad's grave.


We also got to go four wheeling!
Mike and Sandra invited us to go with them. We all had so much fun. This was Elle's first time and she had such a great time. We all did. Thanks for the invite you guys and if you ever need anyone to go with you again just let us know!!

It was such a beautiful day up in the mountains.

Elle loved helping Daddy steer once in awhile, most of the time she just leaned forward on her hands and enjoyed the ride.


Lisa and Kimball's ward in Vernal has an awesome BBQ every year.
This year we got to go.
They roast a huge pig every year. Doesn't it look delicious?
It actually really was so good.
Elle loved telling everyone that we had a pig for dinner.

After dinner they let out a ton of live chickens and bunnies for all the children to try and catch. It was hilarious! They told everyone that if they caught one they got to keep it. Of course Elle caught a little bunny. Luckily, everyone wanted the little bunnies so someone took it off our hands. It was such a good time.
