Texas Bluebonnets

I don’t have as seamless a record of taking bluebonnet pictures as I do pumpkin patch pictures, but most years have been documented with a trip to a bluebonnet patch.  After all, it IS a Texas tradition.  I love looking back through the years and seeing how my girls have changed and grown.

Of course, sometimes that leaves me feeling a little sad.  I touched a little on my “I-am-not-happy-my-kids-are-growing-up” phase I’ve recently been living through back in my post on Monday.

For the most part, though, I just enjoy the moment.  Most of the time, I’m enjoying my children at the ages they are now.

They really are as sweet as they look.
This one is technically not mine, but I am certainly enjoying him every change I get.  (Cute nephew alert!)

I love how the seasons demand I slow down and take a moment or two to stop, smell the [wild] flowers, and snap some photographs, recording these moments in time.  I know all too soon, they’ll be all grown up and not game for tromping about in the bluebonnets.  So, I’m going to enjoy it now as much as possible.

bb-5Do you have annual photo traditions local to your area?  I’d love to hear what they are!
