Hill Country Blue Bonnet Family Photo Shoot (gone awry)

We just returned from a lovely few days at David's parent's ranch in the hill country outside of Austin. The whole family was there: two grandparents, three siblings, two daughters-in-law, three grandchildren, and two dogs. It's a popular time of year to visit because of the blooming bluebonnets aplenty. What a perfect opportunity for a family portrait, one might think.

Think again.

Our Family Shots

 Grandkid Shots

 Sam's trying hard to smile through his tears
The girls are making no effort whatsoever

 Scarlett's just screaming

and Clara's starting with her famous pre-cry lip-curl



and...we're done here. 

good news is the bluebonnets themselves were beautiful

and hopefully we got at least one semi-decent whole family shot

Happy Spring from our family to yours!
