so it was plastic sword to plastic sword, equal armor quality so I said it was okay...I told the kids just to keep to the grassy area and not get in front of or around people. They did so.
I have to say : Aurora dominated the entire sword fight, a few times getting the taller boy to his knees, and letting him recover, just to disarm him, it was pretty awesome: heh. That's my girl.
I think all of the people eating who noticed were entertained, I heard a few comments here & there mostly amounting to "look: how cute" and "go get him" "go get her" - Lily & Julian cheered Aurora with unbound enthusiasm, which was cool. Julian really wanted to duel next, but his dad said 'no' - I expect it maybe an issue of not wanting to bring the sword fighting home with him: heh heh. Anyhow, that was fun; and I was kinda impressed how Aurora handled herself with a toy sword - serious but not bragging at all - swinging away with good aim, but without any apparent malice, so it was cool.
