We're Official Now

Yep, we're official Texans now...


... We got our picture made in a field of bluebonnets!

For those of you don't live in Texas, bluebonnets are the Texas state flower, and they're adorable. Contrary to public opinion, it's not actually illegal to cut or pick them (except on the side of the highway because that's officially government property). However, most fields and roadsides are allowed to grow unchecked this time of year because nobody wants to cut the bluebonnets! So at this time of year, you'll find fields and fields of bluebonnets, and it's a Texas tradition to take your family out once a year and get their picture taken! So yesterday we met up with some friends and took each others' pictures in a gorgeous field of bluebonnets. Yay for Texas!

What a cute pic! That was one of my favorite traditions in TX! I loved to see the families stopped along the side of the road taking pictures.

We tried to take Patriot's pic in the bluebonnets when we lived there. He didn't cooperate well.

Just today we tried to take the boys pic in a field of daffodils. Patriot didn't cooperate well. I'm sensing the theme.

Somebody AWESOME took it, and she has now posted pics on her blog of the same occasion... (Click on the kristy link next to her picture to see her cute pics, including her sweet and unfortunately bald dog in the bluebonnets! :) )

Incredible picture! Will the bluebonnets still be in bloom when we get there?

Joni said...

Yep, Dad. Justin and I were just discussing this yesterday, and he says they were still blooming last year in May. We should go get a whole family photo in that field! Awwwwwwwwww!
