Playground Love

"It is a happy talent to know how to play."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


I used to swing at night ALL THE TIME, singing at the top of my lungs.....
you forget how wonderful it is!
Ten of us went to the playground late last night to swing under the stars.
It's super fun and endearing to see grown-up boys swinging all together.

And lovely girls:

We were immediately swept up into the pure fun of PLAYING...
weird how easy it is!

Action shots:


Bring on the silly.







Mine and Em's version of a jump (from about two feet high, we basically stepped off the swing)

LOVE THESE KIDS!


Also, it was a balmy night that felt like springtime was upon us, and we want to come back and bring wine and snacks and blankets and run around for hours.
Howling at the moon!
