Spring is my FAVORITE season in Austin. We survived our 5 cold days of Winter and we are rewarded with 80 degree temps and the most gorgeous wildflowers you ever did see. Bonus: It’s not hotter than hell yet. So we Austinites celebrate by dragging our kids into the fields to take pictures with our Texas state flower- bluebonnets. Every year my son reminds me it is against the law to pick bluebonnets, and almost every year my daughter steps in an ant pile. But we still continue on! And almost every year I bribe them with ice cream if they cooperate. Here’s to our traditions and many years of memories that will be cherished forever.
2017-The year everyone cooperated!!!
2016-The year I waited too long and most of the flowers were gone.
2015-The year I was super pregnant.
2014-The first year we saw blue bonnets
