I was really starting to get worried that Bluebonnets 2013 just wasn’t going to happen this year. Easter came and went, and there were no Bluebonnets to be found in the Dallas / Fort Worth area! The fields we usually go to, didn’t have a Bluebonnet insight – they looked like they had been mowed over or just didn’t grow correctly this year. We did have a late freeze, so maybe that is why?
Either way, I was getting disappointed I wouldn’t get the traditional texas bluebonnet photo of Lennox for this year. Thankfully, last weekend we attended Kyle’s mom’s wedding at the Gaylord Texan and since my mother in law works there, she let me in on the fact that they have a HUGE hill of bluebonnets growing – yes!
After the wedding, we headed over there and low and behold, a full hill of bluebonnets, and various other wild flowers
And for the first time ever, we actually got a full family photo in the Bluebonnets. SUCCESS!
The top one is much more a classic smile, the bottom? Much more Lennox style!
I thought this photo was funny. It looks like Lennox is leading the Terrell gang back to the cars so she could go get some dinner! Enough is enough, time to eat! (See the hill of Bluebonnets in the background?)
