Texas Boys and Bluebonnets

Today, I want to share some beautiful photos that my sister took on a recent trip.  On Easter weekend, she traveled with her family to central Texas for some relaxation, and to see the beautiful bluebonnets.  The bluebonnets are spectacular at this time of year in that part of Texas.  Bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas, by the way.

If you know me, you know I'm a Texas girl at heart.  I did live there for 36 years after all.  All things Texan are close to my heart, including the state flower.  I'm happy for my sister, Teresa and her family, who took this opportunity to spend time among these beautiful flowers and make some beautiful memories.

Enjoy these sweet photos, of Thomas and Aaron.  They are 7 years old.  Yes, they are identical twins.  :)

For those of you who LOVE adoption, you'll be happy to learn that Aaron and Thomas were adopted by my sister and her husband.  How wonderful that their family has been blessed by these two little guys.

Here they are with their dad, Randy.  

This is their mommy.  She has grown kids and little kids, just like me.  She's even a grandmother of 3!  I hope I look this nice when I have 3 grandchildren.    :)
