go fly a kite


Yesterday we decided to go fly a kite. (Well, we decided on Saturday, really. You can’t be too spontaneous about this sort of thing, especially if you don’t yet have a kite in your possession.)

Predictions were for a fairly breezy day, just right for kite-flying. We got ourselves out of the house early-ish, and headed over to the open space by the dam (where we sometimes go for walks).

It turned out that the location and conditions were pretty great for kite-flying. This was the first time that either John or I had successfully flown a kite. (Well, I only remember one attempt from my childhood, but I don’t think my sister or I had much idea what we were doing.) In spite of our lack of experience, we managed quite well, and we all enjoyed the time outside in the fresh spring air.

I meant to post these photos last night, but couldn’t stay awake due to another mysterious fever. Have I mentioned that I also have poison ivy due to some poorly thought-out yard work last weekend? Somebody shoot me now.

  1. Phoebe’s outfit is beyond fabulous and well into faboo. I was admiring it long before the caption told me to!

    You know about Tecnu, right?

    And I wonder whether these frequent fevers have anything to do with sleep deprivation…

  2. How fun!! Love the photos, too!

  3. Now I am inspired to try, because I have been so chicken.

  4. I have to say it again: I love Phoebe’s outfit. Just looking at it makes me happy. Yellow! Stripes! Dots! Lots of colors! And is she wearing two headbands?!

  5. I am really loving the slide show feature. Phoebe’s outfit is oh so fabulous! I LOL @ Theo’s being disturbed by the flying kite. Awwww. And this post makes me want to take today off.

    esp. since now I am humming “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” from Mary Poppins…

  6. Holy toledo, has Theo ever grown!

    And Phoebe so uber-cool.
