Bluebonnets on Easter

Thank you so much for all the kind words and prayers.  It has been a humbling feeling to know so many people had our family blanketed in prayer.  We arrived safely back in Texas, and I look forward to sharing with you some amazing stories about my dear father-in-law.


*************************

For now though...some Texas Bluebonnets to share with you.




Early Easter Sunday morning, as we were driving out of Texas,  I mentioned to David how the plans I had for taking Miss Clementine's first-ever photos in the Texas Bluebonnets would have to wait another year.  (Bluebonnets only bloom in early - mid April.)

"I know a spot near the Dennison damn if you want me to stop."  (On Lake Texoma.)



For an impromptu photo shoot, and not having my good camera with me, I think they turned out cute!

Every Texan needs a bluebonnet photo taken!  

"Sweet"
  and 


"Sour"

  2. Beautiful. I have heard and seen much about Texas bluebonnets in others' photos. I am so glad that you were able to make the stop and share them with us. Miss Clementine sure is growing up into the perfect Sweet and Sour toddler. lol.

  4. Hi Patty! Welcome back to you home. I'm so glad you made it back safely. I had no idea the bluebonnets were such a tradition! They are so pretty though, I'm glad your husband knew a place for you to take the photos. Whether sweet or sour, your daughter will appreciate the pics when she gets a little older :)
    Monday Blessings,
    Ceil

    1. Thanks, Ceil. It feels good to be back safe and sound. I was so grateful that he knew of the place since it was too dangerous to stop and jump out along side the highway! (People have been known to do that down here.)

  5. Oh my goodness, how beautiful. Your family, your little 'sweet and sour' one (who looks awfully happy when 'sour'), and those amazing flowers! I don't recall ever seeing a field of bluebonnets before. Magnificent.

    1. Nancy, you would LOVE to see them in person. This particular field was just blooming and I didn't see any of the (bright red) Indian paint brushes blooming with them unfortunately. But the picture for my blog header...that is a good shot I took of them back in 2010.

  6. What a beautiful family. The shots are great with or without a great camera. You've got great subjects so no camera can mess up those beauties. You are blessed beyond measure.

    1. Thanks for those sweet words! I doubt everyone would have looked that "happy" coming back after a long trip. LOL

  7. What a blessing to have a hubby that will say, right before a very long car trip, "I know a place we can stop". Awesome!! :) Pictures turned out just lovely!
