the best fight ever

for ages i've been inspired by, 
and wanting to attempt the holi color fight i'd initially spied over at 

i finally had the chance! 
matt & i had four high schoolers from our church come stay at our house a couple of weeks ago,
as sort of an alternative to summer camp. 
we had a pretty intense program that we came up with every day,
but we also made sure to include an element of play or creativity.
i was able to buy Holi colors at one of the Indian stores in berkeley.

the color fight was a surprise!
we brought the kids down to our backyard,
made them keep their eyes closed, gave each of them a pile of pigmented powder,
turned on some awesome indian dance music,
and let the games begin!

it was awesome,
and once m got over her initial hesitation, m fully embraced the game.

 (love love love this picture and the pigment she's shaking out of her ponytail)

super fun!
{i didn't get that color-fied because i was photographer/ruby holder}
