Behold Excalibur

excalibur

Facebook friends have seen this photo already but it so perfectly captures our day I had to put it here too. Today at the park, a woman was making balloon swords for no particular reason except to put smiles on kids’ faces. The fierce glee of Rilla, chasing a pack of boys she didn’t know with her fearsome pink sword, was a sight to behold. Huck preferred to scale the castle walls and brandish his weapon from the heights. Wonderboy didn’t want a balloon, he just wanted to hang out with me in the bards’ corner and talk about the epic battle. Rilla declared herself the victor, though I’m not sure her army of foes agreed.

  1. “Rilla declared herself the victor, though I’m not sure her army of foes agreed.”

    Well, sure. Hard to agree WHEN YOU’RE DEAD.

  2. I love how the sword is the same shade of green as the bars. It almost looks as if he ripped off one of them to use as a weapon.
