Pictures in the Bluebonnets

This past Saturday, we went with our friends, the Bells, and took pictures in the bluebonnets. It's been 2 years since we've taken the time for this Texas tradition. But I'm so glad we did...we really needed a FULL family picture, with our new little addition!'s not the easiest thing to get these pictures! find a patch of bluebonnets, which are usually on the side of the road and VERY thick, and hope that someone had been there before you to mash down the weeds a bit, so there would be somewhere to sit!
This year, I brought a blanket with save our bums from the dirt and bugs!

Bella is a bit of a poser...silly girl. But I love this picture. Looking thru the ones that were taken, I would go back to the ones of the THREE of them and just marvel that there are THREE of them! I'm a mom to three lovely kids. When did this happen?! lol.
Bella couldn't be a bigger helper to me. There are days she doesn't want to do a thing...but the good days out-weigh the bad ones. I'm so excited for her to start school this next year...I'll miss her, though, being gone to all-day school :(.
This girl...all that really can be said:
....and Spice. That about sums it up (tell us how you REALLY feel, Aube).
The little stud in his white shirt. Don't you just want to squeeze him?!
He could only hold it together for so long!
And again...THANKS to the Bells for helping us take the pictures! We had a blast Ü.
