Driving North

Alexandra and I made it north through Texas and Oklahoma up to mid-Kansas. It was beautiful in Texas and we enjoyed the wildflowers along the road - especially our state flower, the Bluebonnet. If you're not from Texas, you might not know that it is traditional to take your kid's photos in the bluebonnets each spring. I did it faithfully for 3 years, I think, and now I've missed a couple. I'll try to get Alexandra's photo on the way home. I just took these photos from my car after stopping & rolling down the window.

It was rainy and then stormy in OK and KS. In fact, there were tornado warnings following us and my wipers were having problems, but thankfully we passed through before the worst of the weather.

Tomorrow, we're off to Colorado!!!

What pretty flowers! Virginia has some pretty flowers, but you get used to seeing them, so it's really cool to see the State flowers from other areas. :)

Oh how beautiful! I miss them! We had so much draught the last few years I lived in Texas that I haven't seen them in years! BTW Johnny Tremain is on the Y2U4D lit list!
