One constant in Texas is bluebonnets. We have stories and legends about them, we make bluebonnet crafts, and every spring we tour through Central Texas to get some pictures in them.
Every year I’ve had this blog I’ve included pictures from our bluebonnet trips, and this year is no exception.
Some years I have better luck than others. This particular year the kids weren’t too cooperative, on either trip we made, but I got a few good pictures. I also scored a few pictures over by a water feature at Jeff’s work because the kids love playing there.
Princess was my most cooperative, but also the one who was most trying to ham it up. So, I got lots of odd faces in her pictures, but I think overall they’re pretty cute, and rather revealing of her personality.
Batman did fairly good for the first shoot, other than picking an odd spot for his pictures. On the second trip however……… He was having a blast taking pictures and making faces, which if I’m completely honest is a lot more him than the fake smile he plastered on for a few shots.
Oh poor Superman……. That second trip he just was not happy, and no one was listening to him. I feel for the boy, he had one picture he wanted taken, and it was not happening the way he wanted. Of my three kids, he’s the most difficult to photograph, you have to catch him by surprise or he gives you this weird fake grin that looks so cheesy.
We managed to sneak in a few family shots, with some working better than others. The top left corner shot is the one Superman really wanted. He wanted a picture of us standing in the bluebonnets. By contrast, I wanted the family shot sitting down. Poor Ticia only got one of her shots.
I however did a get a lot of shots that look like this. So many shots like this, which if I’m really and truly honest is more what our family looks like than a bunch of smiling faces.
But, I guess the important thing is no one fell in the water, despite their best efforts.
