Mommy and Me Monday | At the Avenues (The 65th edition)


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.

This weekend was busy, but good.  We had #1’s pre-K graduation (more to come on that later) and general life things to get done, but they were all accomplished.

Sunday, after naps for the girls (thank goodness), we headed outside to the Avenues just to get out of the house and throw some “wishes” aka pennies into the fountain.

The girls wanted to stop in front of the flowers to take pictures, so we did.

And, then, they were nice enough to want to take a picture with daddy, too.

Daddy and Me

Amazingly, we didn’t have to bribe them for either picture.

Happy Mommy (and Daddy) and Me Monday!

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:)

  1. That first pic is so sweet, I just love the smiles and sweetness from all of you! And the second one is cute too… okay…. 😉

    Looks like it was cooler there this weekend too!

    1. Yes, it was unseasonably cool. Very strange. And then it was back to almost 90 today!

    1. Thank you. I love it, too! My aunt when to China for a business trip and brought it back for me (I don’t think it’s really the brand the logo suggests it is!)

  2. That took me forever to upload but i finally got it! I snagged a sweet one with JaMonkey this weekend in cave springs!

    1. That was super cute! (Do you mean you had problems with the linky? Maybe I need to try another one!)

  3. Your kids are really just adorable. I love their curly hair. They look like dolls. 😀

  4. Y’all look great! I love the bag – you have that great put-together look I can’t quite pull off!

    (Though it was 90 degrees here yesterday so I can’t imagine the long sleeves!)

    1. I think that might be the nicest thing anybody has said to me in a while…like forever. And, I totally don’t feel like that at all! So, thank you.

  5. I love visiting the avenues! They look thrilled to be out of the house… to see Daddy in the pictures too. Looks like u had an amazing weekend.

  6. Wonderful pictures! Your girls are such cuties! I must say, I love your bag! Where did you get it?? Happy Monday.

    1. Thank you.

      My aunt got it for me in China a while ago on a business trip. It’s supposed to be a TBurch (I think that’s what it is), but I’m pretty sure it isn’t.

      So, if you are a purse person and want to spend a ton, I’m guessing you could get it at a department store.

      So, I looked at Amazon and found the Tory Leather Contrast Leather Tote Bag – Black/Oakbark. It isn’t as pricey as I thought it would be, and seems to be a similar size.

  7. You and your girls are so beautiful! Wish I had remembered to link up last weekend — I actually got a picture of myself with my kiddos for once!

    1. Thank you Holly!

      Come back and link that post up o Monday.

  8. Super sweet pictures and great weekend. Yeah we often head to the mall for get-out-of-the-house time too. Have a great week, Krystyn!

    1. We’ve tried the indoor mall and it drives hubby and me crazy….but we can do the outdoor one!

  9. That’s good for you Krystyn that you spent quality time with your family. Beautiful pics.

  10. Well, they maybe enjoyed the roaming around the avenue and that they feel like having a souvenirs from it. Happy Mommy and Me Monday

  11. aww thats a very nice picture and it’s the kids who ask for picture, that’s something you need to obliged right away

    1. Definitely a nice change. They usually fight me about pictures.

  12. It makes it that much sweeter when you don’t have to bribe them…right?!? Lol! Love that you made wishes in the fountain! Such fun!

    1. So much better.

      And, if they could, they would break us with their “Wishes.” Wishes can be any type of coin. They don’t discriminate.
