Bluebonnet Babes...

I love spring. Baseball, bluebonnets and....birthdays! I can't even believe these 2 deedle bugs will be 1 in less than a week, but that's a teary topic for another day. Today we'l focus on the beautiful bluebonnets.

I absolutely love seeing them scattered along the highways and back-roads. My Papa loved the bluebonnets and I can't help but think of him each time I see them. The first patch I saw I began plotting our photos. As with most things with two babies, it wasn't as easy as I had planned! 

There is a beautiful patch of bluebonnets at a park near our house. It's virtually impossible for me to carry them both very far so it was a bit of a challenge to get them out there. Add in my camera, blankets, their you can imagine, we were a circus. 

I never dreamed the sun would still be so bright at 6pm, but it was. And little man wasn't thrilled about it.

With no photos of Parker I knew we would make a return trip. After all, the bluebonnets are out for about 3 weeks. I have plenty of time to torture my children with the camera :) The opportunity presented itself the very next day when we were dressed and ready for the Easter Bunny. Two birds, one stone, done and done.

Our "First Holiday" character photos have gone swimmingly. Santa was good but I think this one is my absolute favorite. It's going to be hard to top the fear and apathy shown here.

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you're off to a great week!!

Love love love! That bunny photo is awesome. And the flower photos are precious! Your little chunky monkeys are the cutest things ever. One of these days I'm going to get down there to see these famous blue bonnets.
