If you live in the Texas hill country, springtime bluebonnet pictures are a must. They’re practically a requirement to live here…I’ve heard rumors that if you don’t take at least one bluebonnet picture each year they kick you out of the state. Each spring for the 6-8 weeks the bluebonnets are out you can find cars pulled over on the side of the highway and the occupants are out taking pictures in the flowers. Family pictures, kid pictures, senior pictures, dog pictures, and pictures of middle-aged men and their sports cars… everyone gets in on the fun.
The streets of our new neighborhood are lined with bluebonnets, and every time I drive through it to check on the progress of the new house I have the urge to pull over and do a photoshoot with my boys. It’s either because I think my boys are adorable and growing up way too fast, or from my subconscious desire to not get banished from the state… I can’t be sure. Either way, I gave in.
So first we have Elijah, who is six (and smiles so big that he can’t keep his eyes open).
Then Levi, who is 4 (and a half! Don’t ever let him catch you forgetting the half.)
And Judah, who is 13 months (adorable, snugly, amazing months.)
The photo shoot turned out to be more of a blooper reel, but I did accomplish my mission… to get pictures of all three of my boys in their “Big Brother” t-shirts!
Yup…number four will be here in October! Surprise!
More details in the next post, promise!
