Blue Bonnets & Spring

It's a Texas tradition to get pictures with the blue bonnets and this year we joined the fun. The Blue Bonnet is the state flower here and it grows everywhere! There's even a house in our neighborhood that has no visible grass during spring: just blue bonnets. Nice: no need to mow!
We went to a nearby park to get the kids to pose for us. You know what that means! 100 pictures and all with someone (or three) making a weird face or looking somewhere else.
This was the best we could do.

Afterward we walked over to the playground.

This is what we live for: fun times! High five!
Isaac has been practicing his lassoing skills. He's pretty excited about it.
The Easter bunny visited us...late--right before bed--because he was too frightened to come to a dirty house so we had to clean it first.

Later this month, we started getting out the hose and "watering the grass" with the help of the trampoline. I can't believe it's already hot. Nearly 100 degrees today. This activity is a winner around here.

Unfortunately, the first day, Ellie's mom was not keeping track of the time and let her play too long. Oh, and without sunscreen. Oops!

Poor little Ellie bo belly! I love the "good" picture you got with the bluebells. I cannot believe how fast these little tykes are growing up!
