Pictures in the Bluebonnets (March 2014)

We finally took pictures in our seventh year of seeing the bluebonnets here in Texas. It is a common tradition here and you will see people stopped along the road to snap pictures in fields during the two weeks they are in blossom. They are beautiful to see and I have meant to arrange for pictures during them for several years. However it is usually a busy period in the spring when they happen as well and they are usually gone before I realize it. This year I did arrange for a friend of mine to take some photos of us in the bluebonnets and they turned out so well!

March 2014 Activities

March 2014 brought many fun things. During Spring Break week the kids and I met cousins at the zoo and went to the natural science museum. The weather is fabulous in March and so there was lots of outdoors play. The pinewood derby happened and of course we had lots of other fun projects at home. Soccer started up again, Baseball season got underway and Baby continued to become more interesting and interactive.We were also given a zip line for Christmas. We finally got it set up. Kids loved it.

Princess breaks out her coloring castle. It took her 2 weeks to color it and it lasted for months. Great toy!

Sweet baby kept growing!

Potty training success for Little Dude meant getting to eat an entire chocolate bar.

Handsome men!

At the zoo with cousins

Look at the buffalo!

Princess had a blast in the sandbox with cousins. Probably one of the highlights of the zoo.

It was a hotter day so the cool temperature in the aquarium was a welcome change. Group photos weren't a success.

My nephew was not happy about all the noise.

Look at the dinosaurs!
