Where's Mom?! 17/52 Photos of Me!

Are YOU a mom? Are YOU missing from the pictures? Most moms I know are, but here is a fun meme that brings us moms out from behind the camera and puts us into the spotlight! Carin over at Forever In Blue Jeans is the hostess for this year long picture project! It is lots of fun, and just think after 52 weeks there will be at least 52 pictures of YOU in them! It can be scary, but com'on, give it a try! It's easy, all you have to do is hand over the camera and smile (or not, it's completely up to you!). And the best part is, you can jump in whenever; for me this will be my 17th week!
Can you believe that I was in 3 pictures this week...yep 3! How amazing is that?! My hubby is really getting into too, which makes me *giggle*! Every time there is a photo op he asks, 'do you need me to take a picture of you and the boys for your blog?'...isn't he the greatest?!
Picture #1...me and the boys at Westgate. This is a really cool outside mall that has lots of fun shops and restaurants as well as AMC theaters, and dancing fountains. Here we are standing outside of a super fun restaurant where we specifically went for dessert this past weekend. If you saw my WW from yesterday, then you saw the s'more platter that the boys ordered. It was very fun, they brought a platter full of marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate bars and 2 kinds of dipping sauces! They also have bull riding too, which the boys loved! They were bummed that they were too little to try!

Pictures #2 & #3 are from our family fun day that Ryan surprised us with after church on Sunday. I will blog more about that day tomorrow (so make sure to come back and read all about it!), but for now in these pictures we are playing putt-putt! Now normally in AZ it is hot hot hot during this time of the year, but these last couple of weeks have been fairly moderate...in the 90s instead of the 100s. This is a HUGE difference! We had lots of fun on the course! And I won if you were wondering!
Now it's your turn to join the fun! It's easy, hand the camera over, smile and say cheese!

Wow 3 in one week:)

That mall sounds great. I have NEVER seen a place that offered smores for the dessert.

Wow, three whole pictures? You go girl!!! I never participated in the 52 week thing...cuz I ALWAYS make sure I'm in pictures anyway. I take tons, but also make my kids snap a few so that I end up in some too. =0)

Great job this week. Three. I'm impressed! =0)

So fun to know mom was around too! ha ha! That looked like a fabulous time! Can't wait to hear more! I need to get Dan on board with helping me take pictures too! But I don't like my picture taken too often... :)

Great photos!

Laura said...

What great shots of you and your boys! Looks like a fun filled adventure :) You are doing pretty good in my book to be in three photos this week! My boys always seem to sabotage my efforts it seems :) It's getting a little easier, but still a challenge to find this mom in the picture!

Blessings...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Also thank you for teaching kids and realizing too how hard it is for kids when a parent or two are deployed.

Your support of the military is appreciated.

Love your fun in the sun pictures. Don't think I'd leave the A/C if it was in the 90's or 100's here.

When it's that hot here we dry up and have to lay low until it cools down.

Asever,
Nannette
