1st Annual Bluebonnet Pictures

In case you didn't know, I must inform you that the state flower in Texas is the Bluebonnet.  Every year, in early April, the sides of the freeways, empty fields and such are filled with beautiful blue flowers that indicate that Spring is close at hand.  It is kind of a tradition for many families to take a yearly picture of the kiddos with the bluebonnets.  Well, I don't want to be accused of not being a true Texan, so I put Maddie in her Easter dress and took her to an empty field to take her first bluebonnet pictures.  Of course, she fell asleep on the way there and I had to wake her up to take t he pictures, so she isn't smiling too much in any of them.  I think she looks pretty cute anyway.

What fields did you go to?

In Mesquite, off Beltline, just past Walmart, there is a huge field that is full of bluebonnets.

I have a friend in Texas that did the same thing - Austin area. So I guess that you are a true Texan then!
