Texas Bluebonnets

Spring in Texas means bluebonnets. As corporations are moving in and fields are being plowed up, we are seeing less and less in our area, but I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to drive on the highway and see long patches of endless blue flowers. There is a small field close to home, so one night when my husband was out of town, I took the kids out for mandatory bluebonnet photos. Posed photos are not really my thing, I prefer lifestyle so getting my kids to sit still….was comical. Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from a warm spring evening in Texas.

When I asked them to hug…..

And can we just talk about what a sweet big brother he is? He played along so that she could have a tea party in the bluebonnets.
