My Little Runaway(s)

Neither twin had a tantrum. Neither slammed the door and stormed out. Neither declared their parental hatred paired with an avowed intent to never return. Truth told, neither twin was angry in the slightest.

No matter. Nothing is quite as enticing as "running away." The lure of independence. The lure of freedom. The lure of the great outdoors. The lure of spring weather before mosquitoes invade. Irresistible.

They hauled out beloved toys.

They filled water bottles and took out the Worst Case Scenario Survival Guide. (FYI: Be sure to run a zigzag path to escape backyard alligators.)

They searched for buried treasure.

They realized that be it ever so humble, there's no place like home...or the backyard---especially with a companion.

Priceless & Precious.
I remember trying to run away (just for fun) but was halted because I could not cross the road without holding my mom's hand : )

Annie said...

That's great and yes, there's no place like home.

Have a good day.
