That's much better

Is there anything better than children at play?  
I wanna learn how to play more like this.  When did I forget?  Was I 7 years old?  Or 10?  Or when it when I got the loan for my first car or had children of my own?  When did it all become so serious that I forgot how throw inhibition to the wind and be a crowned ninja prince in battle with my arch enemy Honja the crowned ninja prince from the rivaling country of Esopat?
Newly anointed in their freshly made crowns, Tess and Jude were raring to try them out.  Complete with pillow cases for capes and Nerf swords and the battle soon commenced.   The palo verde trees were in full bloom and created an amazing yellow backdrop.  I could not resist taking the photos.  
And when the battle was over, (I have no clue who actually won!) they laid down in the sun, side by side. The sun was warm.  The grass beneath us.  My children were happy.  I thought it was the most perfect moment that ever existed.  

But then she laid her head down on his shoulder and sighed...

...and it got that much better. 


  1. Love this post, Nancy! And the costumes are fantastic!

    We lose so much as we grow up. Play, self confidence... we really need to hang onto those things.
