U is for Umbrella

Kids LOVE umbrellas. I don't know what it is about them.. Here in Austin it hasn't rained in what seems like months, so my pictures will have to be umbrellas in the sun.

The "keep the babies from frying" umbrella fort
My favorite from this park trip


  1. So cute!! I found your blog through the A to Z challenge -- your kids are adorable. :-)

  2. It hailed last week here in Dallas. The purple part of the weather went right over the house!

    My boy grabbed the oak shield his uncle made for him and ran outside with it over his head letting the hailstones break on it.

    Not a bad umbrella! he said.

    Those stones were big as golfballs, too.

  3. Kiernan, Kris and g-girl... thanks!

    Eric... brave boy! Last big hail storm that went through Austin I knew a woman who got a concussion from a hail stone.

  4. Ahhhhhh, asweomeness!!

    And you were lucky to find a field of those this spring.
    Where in the HECK is our rain?? Ben here 21 years almost and never saw this kind of drought.

    Oh well, you made the bluebonnets happen, and caught magically beautifully in photos to cherish forever.


  5. Those photos are so, so adorable :) Thank you for sharing!
