Outstanding in the field

So it's state law that you have to take pictures of your kids in the bluebonnets.

On weekends in late March and most of April, you'll see hundreds of cars pulled over on the side of the road so families can make sure that they're in compliance. Little girls in pretty dresses that will get dirty as soon as their butts hit the ground. Little boys with grass stains on the knees of the khaki pants their parents put them in. Bright colors and pastels. Blue jeans and gingham. While most of the side of the road on 290 is covered with bluebonnets on state property, some farmers are kind enough to open their fields up so the public can make sure they're able to fulfill their legal obligations.

I don't have kids, but I was a little worried that since the legislature is in session right now, they'd start monkeying with the laws. I decided (as did my friend Smash) to stop at a bluebonnet field between Brenham and Chappel Hill and take pictures of the dogs. It's my state duty.



The rest of the photoshoot is here.

She's joking that it's a law, yes. But it's such a tradition; it's a rite of passage. :-D
