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.
TWO HUNDREDTH EDITION! Did you all see that? It’s been almost three years since starting Mommy and Me Monday. Sure we used to have weeks where there were 30+ link ups, and now we are down to like 5-8. But blogging has changed. So far, I’m not giving up with no plans to change.
It totally snuck up on me, but yet, worked out perfectly! This weekend, we went to the Georgia Aquarium with these big girls. It is actually amazing that we were able to get them to all look at the camera and away from the beluga whales.
Why perfectly? Because the very first Mommy and Me Monday was at the Georgia Aquarium almost three years ago! Look how tiny my oldest two were. So very little.
While we were waiting to meet a mermaid from Weeki Wachee Mermaids for the Festival of the SEAson, the girls feel in love with the Beluga whales. E just kept screaming and squealing. They were so excited by the whales and other fish that listened to the mermaid read The Night Before Christmas and then wanted to go right back to the whales. No mermaid pictures for them.
E and daddy enjoyed checking out the gigantic whale sharks, too (I just love those pigtails…bottom left of the picture). And, the fact that there were riser lie seats so I didn’t have to sit on the ground (it’s a long way up!)
I lucked out that I actually got another one of the three of them, too. Even if they are Zoolander posing.
This not-posed, totally happened picture might be my favorite from the entire trip. Al three girls using their computers to learn about the fish in this aquarium. Lined up in a row tallest to smallest. It’s totally them!
We also went and saw the Dolphin Tales show with the Weeki Wachee Mermaids pre-show (no photos allowed). The girls loved both of them, with the dolphins being their favorite. The dolphins performing were also my favorite part, but I wish they had also presented some facts on them, too.
I love that Mommy and Me Monday has been going on for 200 editions and so many of you have been along for the ride! I hope you continue to join in and spread the word. So many people say they wish they were in the pictures, and maybe this year you’ll have the initiative to jump in and get in your pictures.
**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:)
We were provided tickets to the aquarium. All thoughts are my own. No compensation was received.
