Trees | Mommy and Me Monday | 274th ed


We started the week with the family complete. We were missing Mr. Serious very much and were so glad to have him with us for the last couple days of our vacation. 

I had never been to Animal Kingdom, so we decided to all go together. It was significantly cooler (temperature-wise) and the animals and safari were a hit with everybody! We had to stop at the Tree of Life!

And I’m so glad to have a family picture captured there (yes, print and frame for sure!) If you are thinking about Memory Maker while at Disney, I highly recommend it. We purchased it last year and were gifted it this year and it is truly a gift. Everybody gets in the picture!

We finished off the week or started this one (depending on when you flip your calendar) at another tree. When I saw that our local strawberry picking farm was having one last day, we had to head out and pick some strawberries. It’s kind of been a tradition, even with a trip with the great grandparents (64th Mommy and Me Monday and 171st), especially with my two oldest girls, so just the three of us when.

The berries are definitely smaller and harder to find, but they sure are tasty and made an amazing pie (which apparently, I have to share!) 

What were you up to this weekend?

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.  Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband. 

**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.*

  1. Strawberry picking is a favorite May tradition of ours too as I know you saw. 🙂 We spent the weekend at home recovering from a trip to Asheville and me recovering (almost there) from some respiratory mess I caught from the 5 year old. Always something. 😉

  2. Love the picture of your family with the Tree of Life. Cherish these memories as they grow up so fast. We have 5 children – our oldest is 27 and our youngest is 10. The photo that I have is my husband and I with our 2nd granddaughter. I keep saying, “I am not old enough to be a grandmother!”
