North of Houston is a small town called Brenham. It's famous for two things...Blue Bell Ice Cream and its Wild Blue Bonnet Flowers. They are two things I firmly beleive everyone should experience. In March the flowers are a bloomin' so we drove up there after church today and took a few pictures (119 to be exact). We are by no means professional photographers, but we got a few cute pics of the girls and thought you might like to see them.
The family picture. I pick the worst picture takers whenever we need a family photo. After we overcome the language barrier I then have to teach them how to use a camera. It rarely works.
Here is our Annie tromping through the Blue Bonnets. All she wanted to do was pick them and avoid the camera.
Here is our model who insisted that she lay down in flowers for her pictures. It turned out to be a good idea. She looks pretty darn cute.
Something was pretty funny...and she is pretty cute.
Here are my two monkeys attacking me. Poor defenseless daddy.
And here are the three most beautiful girls sitting in one of the most beautiful places on earth. It's a great combination.
Annie insisted on hugging Molly. Always makes for a picturesque moment.
Friday was the ward campout. Our girls were ecstatic to rough it in the City Park we were going to. We set up our tent in lush grassy field we were camping in and prepared for the worst. Molly was so excited about the tent she was ready for bed a few minutes after we got there.
In reality, it did end up being pretty cold. The stinky wind was blowing all night so we were in the tent by 9:30. I think the temperature got down to the low 40s, which is cold for us thin-skinned Houstonians. Luckily our girls slept through the night (probably because they were in the middle of us) and seemed pretty cozy. I think camping was a hit, and hopefully we'll get them out into the real forrest soon.
Annie's first marshmallow roasting.
Hannah is really excited to be in the tent. And she is really cute. It's lovely being married to a woman who loves camping, and wants our kids to experience things like this. It's excellent.
Here is a picture of our girls on St. Patty's Days. Annie has to copy everything Molly is doing. They are the two craziest girls in the world.
'Sup Utah! We are swimmin' down here in H-town. And since then, the girls have been asking to swim everyday. Molly loves having a swim partner this year. They'd move into the pool if they could.
