Despite the impending icky weather, we found field after field of bluebonnets on our Spring Break excursion. And, as is custom in Texas (seriously - it's custom - we saw at least six other cars stopped on the side of the road with families doing the same thing), we plopped our kids right down for some pictures:
And then we toured a nearby creamery/ice cream factory. It was a lot fun seeing how they made the ice cream and watching the machines squirt the slushy goodness into the company's trademark buckets. I think the kids found the ice cream at the end to be the best part, though:
Ryan and I enjoyed our ice cream, too. Yum!
