It's bluebonnet season in Texas, and for those who don't know (only my non-texan readers that is) it's the time of year our state flower blooms and where ever they are you will find children running and parents chasing begging for them to sit for 5 seconds to get their yearly photo. It only last a couple weeks depending on the weather, so off we went last Saturday to take our turn. I had high hopes. They had both just woken up from long naps, the weather was perfect, the sun was setting, we had a perfect spot picked out and they were dressed and clean. If you've seem our constant attempts at a family portrait in recent post you'll understand that this was no different. All I wanted was one picture of my 2 beautiful children sitting in the bluebonnets looking in the genral direction of the camera. One day I will appreciate these very candid photos that we captured. ;)
THIS is pretty much how it all went - Ryder wouldn't sit down & Paisley was very interested in the ground...
yes, I picked one for him to hold, I know it's against the law.
Well, the flowers were beautiful anyway. maybe next year...haha.
