these eyes slay me...
i love this one...watching the "aplanes"

we decided to drive out to grapevine tonight to try and get ava's bluebonnet shots...my favorite pictures to take every year! i love the flowers and ava absolutly loves "fowers", too! she actually will pick clovers from our back yard and say they are "fowers"...and then carry them around all squished up in her hand for ever! so, i wasn't surprised when we got out there and she loved the bluebonnets! ava's great nanny and grandad bradshaw gave her the sweet yellow dress for easter and i thought it would be pretty to wear for her pictures! thank you nanny and grandad, you are so sweet!

i wasn't sure we were going to make it to the location, though. there was a huge car accident on the freeway about three miles from where we were headed. i am not super familiar with grapevine, as far as back-roads go, but we decided to give it a shot...so we finally got there, a little later than planned, so the sun was a bit low. i still got some shots i adore and am so glad we didn't just turn around and come home due to traffic...we were thinking about it! so here she is in all her bluebonnet glory....being distracted by the constant airplanes overhead and totally ignoring me...it drives me mad!
ava and daddy...oh how i adore these two...bo didn't want me to take pictures of him because he was wearing his work clothes, all stained with grease, but i couldn't resist...and i don't care what he is wearing when he is making my baby girl smile like this!
another one...

okay...have to explain the leggings...i wanted to make sure ava would sit down in the flowers and know from experience that there can be bugs and the grass can be itchy, so i threw on her little leggins not intending for them to be in any picures...however, they made it in quite a few...and actually, i love it!
since my child refuses to look at me when i am behind the camera, i put it down for a second and tried to play peek-a-boo with her...just snapped this one without looking...so glad i did! wish i would have gotten more of her body, but so glad i got that cute little face!

the end.

and just think...next year we will have our sweet girl and a sweet baby boy in the spring flowers! such a happy thought!
hope you all have a happy easter!
