Gotta have a bluebonnet picture

Many moons ago, I saw the cutest picture in a co-worker’s office – his daughter in a field of bluebonnets. I was new to Texas, so I thought the setting was unique and artistic. I had no idea that Texas bluebonnet fields are inundated yearly with parents toting their children for the perfect picture. But once I was versed on the child-in-bluebonnets tradition, I was determined to one day be one of those parents.

I was finally inducted into the bluebonnet-parent club this past weekend. On our way to Austin to greet my sister, her fiance, and a good friend at the finish line of the MS150, we pulled over on 290 close to Hempstead.

Michael hasn’t had much experience with nature in his nine months, so I was vewy vewy curious to see his reaction to being set in the long grass.

He was pretty hesitant at first.

It looked like he was going to protest the entire experience.

But he eventually started warming up to his surroundings.

And even started having a good time.

I love that smile.

And I love that baby so very very much.

Excuse me while I go watch him sleep.
