Abby's 1st day of 3K

Summer has come and gone and now it's time for school!! Abby started 3K this year, going only 2 days a week for half days. She officially loves it!! Every day she comes home with a new story about what they learned or created that day. She's a little diva and a priss when it comes to what she wants to wear and how her hair should be fixed. Her creativity is inspiring :) 

 She was a little unsure when we got there and walked in...but having her BFF Kelsie and Jamie there helped!

When Daddy's away, the girls will....GO TO FLORIDA

Joe won another trip through Edward Jones!! This time he went to Turkey for 10 days!! The Mommy was still too attached to the babies to leave them for so long and for so far away so she decided to let the Daddy take a friend and she stayed behind to have a little girl fun!! The day before Daddy left, we packed up our car and started the 9 hour drive to Florida! Luckily Grammy Thomas was left behind by PaPa and she was able to drive back with us - a HUGE help to the Mommy!! While we were in Florida, we made Grammy and PaPa's house our 'home base' and crashed there in between stops. We traveled all over the West Coast of Florida in 10 days time!! Our visit included staying at Grammy and PaPa's, then we moved on to Aunt Melissa's house, and made a stop to see Uncle Mike, then Mommy's high school friend Anna's house, and then college friend Elisa's house then back up to Grandma and Papa Maslar's was a whirl of a trip and the girls were great at keeping up and the madness of traveling!!

Abby loved the blue water of South Florida! 
 The Mommy misses this!!!

My friend Anna lives near Sarasota which is where the big Mote Museum and Aquarium is. We took an afternoon and loaded up the girls to go!
Abby telling us how big the sharks were!
And in true Thomas Girl fashion, we hit the beach again!! The girls loved spending time with Uncle Mike!!
And we totally acted like tourists, broke out the chips and fed the seagulls!!

The Beach AGAIN!?!?!

The end of July, the Thomas girls packed up and went to the beach!! We were determined to take advantage of every little bit of summer that we could! We went with 3 other moms and their kids...together there were 4 moms and 7 toddlers/babies. It was mass chaos with even more excitement and fun!! We had perfect weather and such a great time!!

Our bags are packed! We're ready to go!! After our grocery shopping trip, you could barely see those sweet girls in the back! (Emily Rhoad and Abby)
 Ada trying to figure out why the baby was crying...
 She even attempted to 'perform' for her!
 Hmmmmm, maybe she was the one making the baby cry, so the mommy would come pick her up, thus leaving the coveted bumbo seat empty!

One of the days we were there, we visited Alligator Adventure. It's a reptile zoo with all kinds of alligators and creatures. Abigail and the other girls had such a great time! They even had a feeding time with the gators where they talked about them and fed them whole chickens!

 Can you believe this!?! This was just a section of the place.
 LOVE this kid!! I told her to act like she was being eaten :)
