Bluebonnets of Texas

Adam and I made a trip to Ennis, TX this weekend to picnic and look at the Bluebonnets of Texas. Oh, and of course we took Rueger with us! :)

There are a few bluebonnets here and there in the DFW area on the side of highways, but we wanted to see them in their full glory.

We started out at Bluebonnet park and had a picnic. At the park, you can get in the bluebonnets to take pictures and look around. We most definitely took pictures (anyone who knows me, knows this was a must)! After our picnic and pictures, we made our way to the other side of Ennis to drive the Bluebonnet trails.

There is a map online that says the trails can take up to 2 hours. We decided not to do the whole trail, but we still got to see a bunch of beautiful bluebonnets.

Before we went, I thought Rueger might have liked to play in the bluebonnets. He was happy to be with us, but was indifferent to the flowers. ;) He was more interested in the other people there to look. He is such a people-lover!

Here are some of our pictures from the trip!


  1. Makes me wanna hum the theme from Little House on the prairie! Put a bonnet on Rue...and call him Half-pint! Ha ha. Very beautiful pictures.

  2. That was so much fun. The pictures you took turned out awesome as usual. It was definately worth the drive. Love you!
