Valley of the Sun, Pt. II

It's so fun to be a parent and learn about your children. To see what delights them and captures their interest. To see it hone in over time. 

 And naturally, for 5 year-old Jane, a giant outdoor carousel replete with regally galloping creatures, fantastical colors, twinkling lights, and enchanted music ... yes, this sums up her current self nicely.

Such a simple thing -- paying two dollars for a carousel ride. But so worth the time and pocket change. 

And when you can stop and take it all in through the eyes of your child? A little bit of magic for the mama, too.
