let's play...

we were all craving for sushi last night... 
so we visited our local japanese grocery to pick some up 
and headed to playfair park for a picnic.

after satisfying our bellies with such fresh and yummmmy delicacies, the kids wandered
 around this beautiful park and found the playground.
one yelled "let's play !!!" and they were off into another dimension...

they were laughing so hard that i had to capture some of the action.
here are some inspirational quotes i found on the Internet on why play is so important...

 "you can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation."  plato

"each player must accept the cards life deals him or her, but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game..." voltaire

 "there is work that is work and there is play that is play, there is play that is work and work that is play.  and in only one of these lies happiness."  gelett burgess

to new stages of mastery."  erik h. erikson
