Spring Break: Day 2

On Tuesday of spring break, we had big plans: tour the Blue Bell Creamery and take pictures in the bluebonnets. We drove to Brenham, had lunch, then headed to the Creamery. The line snaked out the door and down a sidewalk. They had even erected portable shades for the people in line--not a good sign. Since my sister and I are so very smart, we decided to ask some questions before unloading the kids. We found out that even if we got in line, we might not get a tour.

So, we took the kids to the picnic area at Washington on the Brazos (the birthplace of Texas) and played for a while. We didn't attempt the historic part of it (we know our limits), but did point out the Brazos River--chocolate milk according to T.S.

After surviving the gravel-throwing-unattended kids at the playground, we set off to take pictures in the bluebonnets. Sadie was promptly bitten by fire ants.

(Part 2 of Day 2 to follow--it ended up being quite an adventure-filled day)
