Birthday Family Shot | Mommy and Me Monday | 218th ed


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

I’m not one to blab about it for weeks on end. Or request a month or even a week long celebration. So, if you aren’t following on Instagram (@SeriousKrystyn), you probably wouldn’t have even know that Thursday was my birthday. Couple that with the fact that we just got back from Disneyland and that my parents came and visited for a long weekend and I’m spent.

So, yeah, my birthday. I turned thirty-something. I received cards from my girls and Mr. Serious and was given many birthday hugs

My parents stopped and picked up some lunch for me (california rolls) and we went out to a new burger place that has gluten free buns! Then, we came home, they sang happy birthday to me and I had some sorbet! It was a perfect.

And to boot? We got a pretty decent family shot with all kids almost looking at the camera, but everybody was awake. #win

Mommy and Me Monday Birthday Edition

So, happy birthday to me, and Happy Easter to my Easter people. And, to my non-Easter people, happy weekend:)

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

  2. Happy “30 something” Birthday to you! You have such a beautiful family- great picture! We gave up on our family of 4 picture on Easter this year. The kids, having had a crazy amount of sugar, were not about to sit still for a photo op. I did get a lot of good ones- including my very first “Mommy and Me” shot!

  3. Happy Birthday to YOU 🙂
