The Georgia Aquarium is our thing for Mommy and Me Monday it seems! Our very first Mommy and Me Monday happened there SEVEN YEARS AGO THIS WEEK! It’s kind of crazy to see the biggest two this little! But there were were taking a picture of the three of us for our very first one!
Since then, we’ve had a lot of other visits to the Georgia Aquarium for Mommy and Me Monday. It’s fun to take a trip down memory lane to see us all grow and change so much! And, it’s also fun to go to the aquarium!
Here we are seven years later. Looking, well, as good as we can look these days! It’s like wrangling snakes sometimes. And at least one person is never happy.
There are a lot of out-takes, but I figure this captures what is going on in our lives better than anything else, so here they go! (And yes the girls know these pictures go up every week and ask if they are going to be featured!)
Thankfully, we got one with more smiles and a giant penguin AND daddy, so I call that a huge win for Mommy and Me Monday!
Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that I’ve done something (besides being a wife and mom) for seven years, but here’s the proof. And, I’m hoping that they will continue to be happy with me jumping in the picture at least once a week. And if not, well, they get the behind the scenes pictures with mommy doing her thing!
Who knew when I had this crazy idea seven years ago that I would actually stick with it. The participants have ebbed and flowed (remember when I had like 40 people linking up a week….yeah, probably not), but I’m in it for my girls and I hope they look back one day and realize how awesome it is.
What did you do this week?
GET IN THE PICTURE WITH YOUR KIDS! Who cares what you look like? Who cares how you appear? Who cares what you are wearing? JUST DO IT! Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
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.
