Mommy and Me Monday- The 22nd 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.

While we were in Houston, we spent some time at Katy Mills Mall.  We wanted to get out of the house, but avoid the heat.  (Because, oh my goodness, it is so hot there…how quickly we forget.)

Since we were on vacation, and had budgeted for entertainment, we took the opportunity to do some things that we wouldn’t normally do.

The girls and I took a ride around the mall in a little electric train.  We were the only passengers and the girls took great joy in saying “hi” to every person we passed.  There were also a couple “choo-choos” from one little passenger.

We also let the girls go for a ride on the carousel.  I think it’s quite obvious that one of the two had a good time, but they actually both had a great time.

And, I had a great time with my feet firmly planted on the ground.  Mr. Serious and Aunt Emily took the girls while I took pictures like a paparazzi.  Spinning and I do not get a long at all.  After all, I can’t even ride on a swing.

*Thanks to Aunt Emily for being prepared and bringing her camera.  I can’t believe I didn’t grab mine.

  1. You all are so cute! My hubby and I went to the mall today and our mall has a train and carousel!!! We were saying to each other how sweet the little ones were on the train ride and carousel ride. We can’t wait til grandbabies for us start a’comin’! (and we can take them for rides :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!

    What a fun mall. I wish we had a train in our local mall. Austin and I would be there everyday and I wouldn’t have to drive 25 miles to take him to Knotts to ride the train.
    I love the pictures as always. Have a great week. Hugs, Lura

  5. Glad to know I’m not the only one that does not get along with the carousel. I have to pick a point on the ride and just watch it.

    Super cute photo as always!

  6. What a great way to spend time with family. I like the picture of your daughter riding the carousel. She is surely enjoying the ride! 🙂

  7. So cute!! I can’t believe you forgot your camera…you must have really been in vacation mode. 🙂
    Melody loves carousels too…that was the first thing she asked to ride at Disney!

  8. Wow! That sounds like a fabulous mall! I wish we had one like that in my town.
    Great pics!

    I’m with you on the spinning! i can do the carousel…but just barely! Love the train pic:)

  10. Ahh, the trains and horses with which we are so familiar. Karys is obsessed. Unless we avoid this entrace, we are in for some of this fun. Haha! Look at Iz on that horse – love it!

  11. how fun! argh…I get dizzy on a carousel….lol! awesome pics!

  12. I know what you mean about the heat! We thought Florida was bad…

    Those are the kinds of things they will remember! Such fun!

  13. I’m with you. I won’t do anything that spins. In fact, I won’t even pivot too quickly because that will make me feel queasy.

  14. what a fun! The train looks like a blast and I am with you on the spinning. I can do the carousel but only slow ones 😉 I don’t even really like to rock in a chair!

  15. They look like they had a fantastic time – your girls are both getting so big, it surprises me a little every time I look at pictures of them!

  16. Merry Go Rounds and me don’t go together very well. 😉

  17. I love these pics. Thank you so much for hosting this awesome blog hop. I’ve been having a great time looking at mommy and me photos and getting inspired to make many more of my own 🙂

  18. What wonderful photos… you all look like you had such a great time. I love riding carousels, they are pretty much the only ride I can go on because of my spine. However, if they go too fast, I do have a problem because I suffer from vertigo, also.

  19. Hi Krystyn-

    Thank you for coming to my VERY new and VERY amatuer blog! I love the idea of mommy and me monday… I might copy you and start taking my kids on adventures every Monday. Looks like so much fun!


  20. Yay for Mommy and Me Mondays! I love getting to watch you with the girls!

    How fun does the train look, and I’m pretty impressed with how big the mall must be to fit a train in it! Yay for not having to spin either. As much as I would love to hit Cedar Point pretty sure I can’t do it anymore. Ugh.

    Happy Week friend!

  21. cool Mommy and me pics!!! And BTW, thanks for the linky!!

  22. You girls are always so cute together!

    I just passed by Katy Mills Mall on my way to Austin on Wed.!

  23. So sweet! I remember how magical the carousel felt at that age. I still love to watch them, they are so beautiful!

  24. Hey mommy K! Sorry my entry is so late. We have been very busy lately and hoping that things will be back to normal and in order around the house. Anyway, I still wanted to share mine and I hope it is okay. Thanks again!

    Love your photos with the kids. Looks like they had a great time. I don’t like spinning things as well, as I get really dizzy. So spinning and me really don’t get along too. LOL!

  25. i seriously can’t believe how big the girls are getting? i feel like both of them have grown sooo much this summer??

    so sweet friend!

  26. Thanks so much mommy K! 🙂 Have a great night!
