Bluebonnets are big in Texas. A couple weeks ago, my mom came down from Dallas to babysit for me (nice, huh? a four-hour drive to babysit!), and the afternoon that she got here, we went out in search of fields of bluebonnets. This is the Texas equivalent of leaf-peeping in New England in the fall. Tons of people are out looking at bluebonnet fields, parking wherever good views are to be found, tracking the peak flowering on websites.
We also stopped at the Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham for ice cream. Lyle liked running around in the fields of flowers, but the ice cream was definitely the highlight of his day.
