We have gotten so much rain these past couple of weeks. The rain brought spring to Texas. In the medians on the highway there are miles and miles of bluebonnets. I knew I wanted to get some pictures of the kids in them. BUT I am not daring enough to pull over on the side of the road where cars are whizzing past you at 80 miles an hour! So I loaded up the car, packed some ammunition (Easter m&ms), the camera, spare battery and headed out to the woods near Salado.
We found a little patch just off the road in a quiet little wooded area. I was surprised how small they were. In town they seem pretty big. but they much just be huge clusters of them. Anyhow, I told Will to hug his sister but not choke her!
After paying out the bribe they finally sat down. There was this little bare patch right in the middle of these.
The kids had a good time and were surprisingly cooperative. I did pay out a handful of m&ms, but hey it worked!
There were some white ones too. I didn't know there were white bonnets. Livi tried smelling one.....it just made her sneeze!
happy Sunday y'all!
