while taking the long way home from lunch through a neighborhood near our house, i drove past a random patch of bluebonnets on the side of the road. i threw the car into park, quickly bathed my children with wet ones, and plopped them in the "field" of bluebonnets with strict instructions not to eat or smush them.
now i could finally have some of those cute kid-in-bluebonnets photographs so popular in texas this time of year.
