Kitara and Kairi in their element, running free on the lawns of the Legislature.

During the Victoria Day parade of bands (the day before the Victoria Day parade), many of the visiting marching bands strut their stuff (and work out any final performance bugs) for the crowds at the Ledge.
Kitara and Kairi watched and listened, rapt in the music. There was much sharing of chocolate-covered pretzels and arms-around-shoulders.
And, afterwards, there was much running, falling, giggling, hugging, squealing, and rolling.
Of course, there were also tears. So much close contact and hugs leads to space invasion and little girl lashouts and retaliations.
As Meaghan, Kairi’s mum, so aptly puts it, they love each other so much, but they just can’t stay out of each others’ faces.
Thankfully, there’s stuff like this to remember the 98% of their time spent together.
