Kelly Guards Rapunzel

As my oldest son and I walked up, the family of Kelly, Rapunzel and Glenda were sitting near each other. Then, 2 young men that were there became a little loud and began beating on their chests. Kelly didn't like this, and walked over to Rapunzel and stood over her as if to guard her and let them know she was his. He then moved the family around the trail to the back until the young men left.
