Texas Bluebonnets

Taking pictures in and around the bluebonnets is a Texas tradition, since they are the Texas State Flower. Every spring, when the bluebonnets are blooming, people pull off the sides of busy highways and take pictures. Kinda crazy; a little unsafe...but you can't argue with tradition. This year, we kicked it up a notch. Since hubby is a pilot and part-owner of a small plane, and none of the other partners were flying last weekend, we decided to take off (literally) after church on Sunday, and get our bluebonnet pictures done. Our pictures were taken between the taxiway and runway of a small airport. Yes, you read that right. BETWEEN the taxiway and runway. We're nuts. Anyway, here are just a few pictures....
Kitty, Princess and Angel (l-r) in the bluebonnets
Bluebonnets, and my new favorite flower: Indian Paintbrush
Running between the flowery patches
And a family photo, on the runway sign
I was going to post more individual pictures of the girls, but Blogger will only let me upload five pics at a time, so I'll make a separate blog post for each girl. Later.
Safety disclaimer: no airplanes were using the runway while we were next to it. Haha...had y'all going there for a minute, didn't I?
