Easter and (mainly) Bluebonnet Pics

Pics as promised from Easter weekend. We took advantage of Mr. C having Good Friday off and took a mini road trip to Austin to visit his old high school/college friend in from Chicago for the holiday. On the way there we came across a huge open field of bluebonnets outside of Brenham (best known as the home of Blue Bell ice cream). There were cars lined up for at least a mile and paths through the bluebonnets for people to wind their way back to find the perfect picture spot. We couldn't resist, so we pulled over to take a few (hundred) pictures of little C.
We had a great visit in Austin with Mr. C's friend and then it was off to Mr. C's grandparents for some home cooking and some visiting. Mr. C has four living grandparents - it's remarkable, and they all still live independently in Austin, so we treasure any opportunity to get up that way to visit them.

Saturday we headed home, and Sunday morning we took a sec to go through the loot the bunny brought before heading off to church for worship and pancakes. Then that afternoon we loaded back into the car to visit my parents for Easter lunch/dinner.

A great weekend and wonderful first Easter for the munchkin, but sadly we didn't take many pictures after the bluebonnets. We are just horrible about that sometimes. I was even asked to take a picture of a family at the pancake breakfast at church on Easter morning, and as they all huddled together I thought, we should do this! Then forgot. We are just NOT good picture parents. If we ever have a second or third, God help them...they'll be lucky to get any pictures at all!

I love all the PICTURES!!! Thanks! The bluebonnets are beautiful. I loved the story about the crying 3-year old. For some reason it makes me picture you in the soroity house pointing and talking, he he
