I am that mom. Yes, I am the person that stops the minivan on the side of the freeway and unloads the kids to run up and down the hill in the bluebonnets. I just can't resist. They are so beautiful. We saw lots of the beautiful blue at the beginning of the great grandparent tour. We had to stop for pictures. There were tons of Texas Indian Paintbrushes too. Only a couple of kids stepped in ant piles. And at least it wasn't rush hour. P.S. Didn't your mother tell you?...DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS!
