bluebonnet bust

We’ve been so busy…you know, having a baby and all…that we missed the peak of the Texas Bluebonnets here, but I didn’t want to miss our annual bluebonnet picture. Plus, this would be Finn’s first! The Bluebonnets bloom during a short span of time and we hit the tail end (plus I think this season was shorter due to the weather.) We went to the park near our house where there is usually a huge field of Bluebonnets, but there were only a few stragglers left. So we plopped the kids down near the few that we found.

With few flowers and the sun in their eyes, the picture is kind of a bust. But at least the kids looked cute!

And we had fun walking through the park on such a nice day.

The Texas Bluebonnets have been in full bloom here so we took advantage of a sunny, but windy Sunday afternoon to take some pictures of Harper. Apparently, it’s a pretty popular thing to do here. The field near our house was chock full of cute families posing for pictures. There were even people posing with their dogs. We rode our bikes down a trail from our house to a nearby park with a big open field of Bluebonnets and by the time we got there, Harper wasn’t in the mood and didn’t feel like sitting by herself in the middle of a field of flowers, but she warmed up after a few minutes and ended up loving it! I think this may become an annual tradition!
