Mother's Day Fun with Kids

It's probably a good thing the kids first ran and jumped off lots of energy "doing the windows" (above post) before we took a ride through the Hill Country. Even though the bluebonnets are done blooming this year, there are still lots of beautiful Indian blanket wildflowers gracing the sides of the roads. Lady Bird Johnson lives on!

There are also scads of blooming prickly pear cacti growing as weeds along the roads and ranch fences.

We stopped at Lake Buchanan and enjoyed the warm, dry weather!

Well, the kids didn't stay very dry!

After we got home, we watched the video Joe took of the kids "doing the windows" in the morning--BACKWARDS!

Absolutely beautiful flowers! oh... I am so jealous. Your hill country is just gorgeous. I can't wait to bring my family there for a visit (or to live ;)
