SOLVED: SOLVED: SOLVED: SOLVED: SOLVED: Plant with small pink flower in central

Austin, TX

I almost overlooked this plant with the tiny, 1/4" pale pink flowers from Washington-on-the-Brazos state park. Any ideas will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Rminds me of the penstemons, http://txflora.org/Search.aspx?NoFilter=true#blank see if the link works

Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

Absolutely not a penstemon.
The opposite leaves suggest Caryophyllaceae and the inflated calyces suggest Silene.
Looks like Silene gallica:
