Spring in Texas

The spring weather has arrived in Austin! We have been enjoying warm (80 degrees or warmer) and sunny weather this week. This is the time of year when the weather is absolutely perfect in Austin. We send our love to our friends and family that are still experiencing snow in the north. :) Snowy weather is so hard for us to imagine in April, although we both experienced it when we lived in Minnesota. It's just been awhile for us. We are taking advantage of the warm weather by going on evening walks as a family, as well as the occasional visit to our favorite restaurants with outdoor seating.

A spring tradition in Texas is bluebonnet pictures. You know the bluebonnets have peeked when you see many cars pulled over on the roadside by a field. The field will be overflowing with bluebonnets, spotted with kids in white outfits, and parents making faces to capture the memory with their camera.

Minor and I have loved to take part in Texas traditions. We figure while we're living here, why not?! We've done bluebonnets pictures just the two of us or with our friends, the Hays, since our arrival in Texas. This year we took our little comet, Sawyer, out for his first bluebonnet photo session. We went in the evening, so we didn't capture any of his smiles. But, we had a great time!

It's hard to find the words to describe the excitement in Sawyer's face. My only thought is, "Are we done yet?"

Spring weather is lacking here. Snow flurries are in the air. Only wish we could live in Austin.

Love, Dad
