Bluebonnet Photo Session: FAIL

So the state flower down here is the bluebonnet and some people try to take their kids out, take pictures and risk the weeds, burrs, spiders and fire ants in hopes of capturing THE perfect shot. Like this one…(this is Kendall’s teacher and her family)

Well...our photo session should be called "Itchy and Scratchy go see the bluebonnets." To say it was a disaster photo session is an understatement.
However I managed to capture a few decent shots. Like 14 okay pictures out of 215 shots (okay maybe not that many but close). But it was because:

#1) there were weeds and bugs galore amidst the ever-so-lovely bluebonnets. #2) Avery just hates the camera. You'd think by her reaction that I have a permanent disfigurement on my face to which she makes awkward faces and tries to politely look anywhere but my eyes/lens. So here you go already.

Oh wait, it gets better. I didn’t even mention my embarrassment as I’m yelling at my kids to “JUST FREAKING STAND STILL AND SMILE FOR ONE MINUTE SO THAT I CAN GET ONE DECENT SHOT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!” as a lovely lady that lives in the neighborhood was walking past with her dog.

I wanted to crawl in a hole and die.

Then to make matters worse she was really nice and offered to take a picture with me in it as well. I did not take her up on her offer but she let the girls pet her dog and it gave them a brief break from their mommy forcing them to smile and stand still and ACT LIKE THEY LOVE EACH OTHER, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS. Ok, no really, here are the pictures. I need to get some sleep. Much love to you all!!!!!
