Gage's Bluebonnet Pictures, 2012.

Well, it's kind of a Texas tradition: take your kid's picture in the bluebonnets. {Of course, we never did it before, but Gage saw others doing it, and he asked, so we made a stop one day on the way home from school. No, it wasn't a big planned event. No, he didn't pick out a special outfit. He wore this to school, and there you have it.}

Now, what is a bluebonnet?

The following information about the bluebonnet is from:
As historian Jack Maguire so aptly wrote, "It's not only the state flower but also a kind of floral trademark almost as well known to outsiders as cowboy boots and the Stetson hat." He goes on to affirm that "The bluebonnet is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland, the cherry blossom to Japan, the lily to France, the rose to England and the tulip to Holland."

Here are Gage's bluebonnet pictures. He had fun. I, in turn, had fun.
