Mommy and Me Monday- In the backyard (The 59th)


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.

**I’m also guest posting at This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff (live Monday).  Make sure you head over and read about my Orange Juice snobs.  And, I just learned this is breaking a rule.  But, some of you don’t like Mommy and Me Monday.  So, just go over there instead**

Spring is here.  Again.  Along with the crappy yellow pollen.  EVERYWHERE!  Including my eyes, my nose my mouth, my car!

I should buy stock in allergy medicine.  And, now, the girls are getting allergy symptoms, too.

Despite all of that, they love playing in the backyard (the dog is no longer a problem…not sure where he went, but we are super thankful!)

Lucky for us, too, only one little girl needs a push on her swing.  But, they both like to go "super looper looper fast!"

(Promise that’s me…and I’m not 12.  But, I feel like I look like it in that picture.  Really, I’m not.  And, I’ve got a super big birthday this month, too!)

**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. I always get comments on looking young for my age as well. It’s a good thing though, because one day when we are much older we’ll look much younger & can use it to our advantage! haha! Love the swing pictures, we’ve been loving the weather here as well!

    1. Here’s hoping that’s the case. My mom still gets ID’d so I guess I’ve got that going for me.

    1. Amen! There is still one in the backyard, but he’s not as loud or annoying!

      I yearn for the day of no sneezing.

  9. How nice that you got lots of flower blooms there that pollen grains is just everywhere. 🙂 Hope you wont get serious allergies. Lovely pictures you got here. The kids are sure having fun outside the house. Happy Spring!

  10. Hurray for outdoors weather! Mother nature keeps teasing us with one nice day and then snow and sleet just to spite me. Hoping for spring blooms soon, even though it will mean the daily taking of Claritin.

    1. Oh, super yucky no fun. although, I’m not certain I would trade the sneezing for snow.

  11. Oh, I love the swing! Wish we can have one in our backyard! Your daughter is so cute!

  12. Cute! Yes….the pollen is out of control. I dont understand why they have a pollen count of 90 as high when its never under 2000!! Crazy!

    1. That’s a good point. Although, they will still have to call it super high, right?


  13. Everyone always thinks I’m way younger than I am too! You do look young from the back like that! 🙂 cute picture!!

  14. It looks like she is in love with the swing…so much fun!

  16. You look like so young, well looking young always sounds good

  17. Pollen is awful in GA! Crazy awful! Never saw anything like it where we lived in PA. We all have allergies.

    PS…couldn’t get mr linky to work for me for some reason. I would upload the pic, crop and then it would boot me to the Mr linky actual site. Strange!

    I did get my Mommy and Me Monday post up this week though. Yay!

    1. It is ridiculous!

      PS I added your link in the same day…maybe Linky was down for a minute.

  18. how fun!
    I really want to install a playground in the backyard but cant decide which kind. Plus it needs to be small enough to fit in the backyard, Plus, it has to get approval from HOA. decisions like that are tough!

    1. Oh, that does make it tough.

      The previous owners put ours in!

  19. surely you and your kids had so much fun together…

    linked up my first entry..

    have a great day!

  20. yay for spring and double yay for super big birthday months!!
