I have been determined to get bluebonnet pictures this year. We have tried several times, but one thing or another always came up.
Well, this week, I was going to make it happen.
I got the girls all packed and ready.
Convinced Bryson to change out of "running clothes". (a HUGE accomplishment)
Michael left work early to meet us.
Made it to the field we went to 2 years ago with beautiful bluebonnets...
ooooh how adorable and tiny!
and there was not a single stinkin' bluebonnet!!
The entire field was covered in weeds 3 feet tall and red wild flowers.
But after all of that work, by golly, I was going to get pictures.
It was quite chilly for the last week in April and Bryson definitely let us know he would much rather be wearing his running clothes. And he definitely didn't want to smile. Mr. Grumpy Gills was NOT feelin' the pictures that day. Thankyouterriblethrees.
The weeds were out of control.
The sun was crazy bright.
The boy (with a giant scrape on his forehead) refused to smile.
But, somehow, we managed to get a few cute pictures.
Definitely not what I was going for, but that's just life these days :)
I'm still holding out hope for some real bluebonnet pictures. Maybe next week?
I'm definitely bringing candy to bribe a certain someone to smile.
I'm sooo not above bribing that kid ;)
