A Texas Tradition

Every year my mom would dress us girls up and make us take some pictures in the bluebonnets. I didn't love it but it's one of those things you just have to do around here. Well a few days ago I had one of those "I have totally turned into my mother" moments when I drove past a gorgeous hill of bluebonnets and couldn't wait to get a free second to take B out to get some pics in them. 

I had initially planned on just taking a few shots of Boston but lucky for us, a professional photographer pulled up about 10 minutes after we did, saw me snapping some pics of B, and asked if I wanted to be in a few. So nice of her!! And what a great set of pics I can look back on for years to come. 

P.S. How great is B for the camera?? I swear as soon as I pull out a camera or a phone he really turns it on. (And yes I realize that probably won't last much longer ;P)
I am pretty sure he was contemplating which flower he was going to try and eat next…. It's hard work trying to get pictures and keep him from eating whatever is in reach.
