We're taking this seriously -- being back in Texas, that is. It's bluebonnet season here, we've missed them, they're beautiful, we simply had to do the "kids-in-the-bluebonnets" pictures.
We see them lining the roads everywhere we go, but we hadn't seen a good safe place to stop and get in them. Then we found out that my Uncle Bubba and Aunt Stephy's front yard is full of them. So we took a little field trip today...
It was just me and the Wells brothers on a very windy and sunny day...I didn't get the "perfect" picture with six little eyes looking at me and three perfect little smiles. But I must say I got some pretty good ones!
Here's my favorite:
(It's the same one up there with the Wellsbrothers title.) Bret said, "That's a really good picture. It's pretty funny how Joey's tummy is sticking out of his shirt and he's just looking at it."
Ahh...yes, it is...but there's more to the story...
It was bright and sunny enough that I was just snapping pictures, not really able to see what I was getting on the screen of my camera. Conner was saying something about, "Look Mom, look! Joey has three hands! Look, he's touching his head with his third hand!" I kind of laughed, I could tell that Conner was rubbing all over Joey's face. I kind of asked him to stop, but mostly I was hurriedly snapping away while no one was running away.
Then we got home and started going through the pictures. It turns out that Joey had three hands in more of a way than I had realized...Conner's hand was actually in Joey's shirt...That crazy kid!
Here's a few more than turned out decent:Then just about the time we were starting to get tired and frustrated, a ladybug came to visit.
