Bluebonnets 2014

I knew from before I had kids, that taking bluebonnet pictures was going to be a tradition for my family. What I didn't expect was that we would go to the car show every year and take blue bonnet pictures afterward. (At least that is what we have done the last 2 years). I guess when you have a husband that loves cars it only makes sense.

Did you know, its a myth that it's illegal to pick bluebonnets? I guess our little guy won't have the police after him.

Nonna was in town this year, so she had to get a few with her grand baby.

The difference a year makes.

Last year we went to the same bluebonnet patch. While I was taking pictures our lens cap fell out of the pocket and we lost it. We looked everywhere, but never found it. As we were getting out of the car this year I was telling my MIL about it and putting my cap in the car (so it wouldn't happen again).

As we are walking Joel say "Carissa, your never going to believe this", I turn around and look at what he's holding!! We thought for sure the lawn mowers would mess it up, but it was in great condition (just a little dirty)!

Bluebonnets 2013

I LOVE living in TEXAS! I love Blue Bell Ice Cream, Dr. Pepper, Texas Rangers, Texas pride and the Dallas Cowboys. But one of my favorite things about Texas is that every Spring our state flower, the bluebonnet, blooms.

We decided to start a fun tradition with our little family of taking bluebonnet pictures every year! I can't wait to see our family changes and grows.

We made our first attempt at pictures on Monday. However, Landry wasn't himself. We got a few pictures, but you can tell he wasn't feeling well. This is the best I could get.

He was more interested in eating the flowers!

So this past Saturday, we had another beautiful day. We decided to give it another go! These turned out much better!

Landry was dressed much cuter the first day, but the "My Mom Rocks" shirt makes me happy!

Our sweet boy was laughing with his mouth wide open the entire time!

Mommy and Daddy even got in a few pictures! (Thanks to Aunt B)

My family even got in a few!
