We were enjoying a lazy evening at my sisters house not too long ago, like so many I remember with hammocks and fireflies and kids damp and grubby from playing outside all day. Ella was sporting her new blue birthday Crocs from Mimi and when little Dove spotted them a battle of the miniature wood nymph fairies ensued.
They scurried around the grass, Ella with a one shoe limp, tossing back and forth adamant cries of "mine".
Dove-bird emerges victorious.
And Ella Bella makes a slow retreat.
