It's Bluebonnet time in Texas!

If you're from the great Lonestar State you know what I'm talking about.

It's the annual search for the best spot to take your children's picture surrounded by the state flower, the bluebonnet! Seeing vanloads of people stopping on the side of the highway to snap photos is a common occurrence and this year was no different.

Suzy and I decided to try our luck yesterday since it was a school holiday and she's never taken bluebonnet pics (which very well could be illegal around here...).

We found a great spot off Spur 408 and Grady Niblo which allowed us to park under the overpass and shoot pictures somewhat below the highway which ended up being much safer! :) It was a little too windy and was kinda chilly but most of the pictures turned out super cute.

I love the pictures!! By the way I also heard that it's a law in Texas that you have to take pictures of your kiddos in the blue bonnets. =)
