Kids grow up so fast these days.

For many loyal daytime TV fans, they feel like they've had a front-row seat to watching Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' kids go from kids to teenagers.

After all, the talk-show host is open about her family dynamics on Live With Kelly and Ryan.

In a new Instagram post, however, Kelly inadvertently gave fans a reason to feel old with a sweet throwback photo of her family.

"#tbt 2011 vs. 2019 Les murs sont devenus plus petits," she wrote on social media with her husband and three kids enjoying a picture-perfect vacation.

It's just one of the countless memories this family has experienced in between busy work commitments and school schedules.

And with the summer season just kicking off, perhaps this is the first of many vacations to come in the months ahead.

Until then, we compiled just some of our favorite family moments with the Ripa and Consuelos family in our gallery below.

Mommy & Son

Kelly and Mark's eldest child, son Michael Consuelos, 24 at the time, posted this sweet throwback photo of him and his mom on her 51st birthday in 2021, writing, "Happy Birthday, Mom!! I hope you have the greatest day ever. You're a badass and an inspiration to everyone. Also, when I call you a T. Rex, I mean it as a compliment. You should know that by now."

History Repeating

In August 2020, Kelly Ripa shared an epic recreation of an old family photo from 2003 on Instagram. With youngest son Joaquin on her lap and older kids Michael and Lola perfectly in place, we'd say they nailed it despite the fact that, as Kelly noted, "objects may appear larger."

Glad Grad

In May 2020, Kelly and Mark celebrated eldest son Michael's graduation—albeit a virtual one, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic—from New York University. Marking the occasion, Kelly wrote on Instagram, "And just like that you graduated college. MJC, the joy and pride you have brought our family is indescribable. I love you with all my heart."

All Grown Up

From kids to teenagers! "#tbt 2011 vs. 2019 Les murs sont devenus plus petits," Kelly shared in an Instagram post that showed just how much her kids have grown. 

School's Out

"The Graduate #2019," Kelly wrote on Instagram when celebrating Lola's latest accomplishment. 

Star-Studded Walk

When Kelly received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2015, her entire family including kids Lola, Michael and Joaquin couldn't help but attend. 

Milestone Moments

When it's time to celebrate a big event, you can count on the entire family to join in and celebrate. 

Selfie Time

When your family is this beautiful, you would likely be posing for selfies more often than not too. 

Joy to the World

Holidays always bring family together and this famous crew is no exception. 

Family Fun Day

Back in 2003, Kelly and husband Mark Consuelos celebrated the opening night for A Year With Frog and Toad at Maxine's in New York City.

Red Carpet Pros

Back in 2001, Mark and Kelly took their son to the ATLANTIS The Lost Empire premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City. 

Snow Day

Whether they are traveling somewhere hot and tropical or cool and snowy, this family always knows how to have a good time. 

Have a great summer you guys!
