If you’re not from Texas I don’t know if you can understand what a big deal it is for parents to take pictures of their children in a field of bluebonnets every spring. In high school, I actually referenced “taking bluebonnet pictures” in a senior essay about my aspirations for the future as a symbol of everything I hoped and dreamed about motherhood.
Last year, much to my disappointment, I didn’t get any bluebonnet pictures because neither the bluebonnets nor my daughter were cooperative. This year, well…at least the bluebonnets were back!
Warmed her up to the flower patch by showing Abby the “cat’s claw”
inside each petal.
Mommy does know how to run! Racing to another side of the field.
The things we do to get a smile…
