It's a Texas tradition to have your child's picture taken in the bluebonnets, and I've been searching for just the right patch. Last year, Ian was an infant, and the bluebonnets weren't great because of the drought. I've waited almost too long in my quest to find the perfect spot, so I settled for some that weren't on the side of the highway (a little too distracting to have cars and trucks flying down the road at 70 miles an hour as I try to capture my child's attention for a photo). It was an overcast day, windy, and Ian wasn't feeling very photogenic, but at least I have some pictures of him in the bluebonnets. Better luck next year, huh? Trying to eat the bluebonnets.
One of the better photos, but it is sloping downhill. It's hard to get on the ground, get Ian's attention, make him smile, and take a picture all at the same time...having the camera level was another challenge.

"Are we almost done?"
Dancing along (and almost smiling) to whatever song I was singing to try to get a happy reaction out of him. He moves his arms up and down with the beat...pretty adorable if I do say so myself.

This was the last one that I took, and the majority of the photos turned out like this. Ian was definitely DONE taking pictures!

I love all the pics and I think the bluebonnet pics turned out great! Hope you have a great week!

P.S. The petting zoo didn't look as bad as I thought. :)
