We had about an hour between church and our Easter family gathering on Sunday. The boys were super cute in their bow ties and we had a beautiful lawn of dandelions blooming. Actually, our lawn was getting totally out of control with dandelions, but I thought they might be pretty for Easter pictures…it’s all about perspective, right?
Levi thought it was a great idea too. He was all about running through the dandelions and spreading more dandelion seeds.
And then we tried to convince Griffin to pose for some brother pictures in the dandelion field and he didn’t think that sounded too fun.
This is definitely a picture of real life with a two and four year old.
I don’t know what was so traumatizing about taking pictures with your brother but I’m pretty sure Griffin thought his world was ending.
So we took a little break.
And after a few minutes of love from his mama…and some Easter candy bribing…he decided pictures weren’t so bad after all.
Levi tried to teach Griffin how to blow the dandelion puffs. He tried so hard.
His lips sure looked cute all puckered up…but he couldn’t quite get the blowing part down.
Oh my goodness…I love these two.
Still gathering dandelion puffs.
And still trying so hard to blow those seeds.
My dandelion pictures looked like they were going to be a disaster. Sometimes it’s not even worth trying…you just have to let it go and catch them at the right time. But I’m so glad we tried one more time on this day.
These are definitely some of my new favorite pics.
And we finally sprayed our lawn…so no more fields of dandelions.
The boys’ bow ties are from The Splendid Bow. She has the most adorable bow ties!
