Shooter's Comments:

This was as much fun as it looked. I was just hoping for a couple of kids making straw angels when this woman jumped in and engaged in a straw fight with her nephew Tait and his friend.

I'm pretty sure the hijinks were encouraged by a relative standing nearby who saw me taking photos, though she denied it. Normally, I would have knelt down to the kids' level for the photo, but the background was really busy and I was too close for a telephoto lens.
