a kite flying day

I have great memories of flying kites with my Grandpa at a park near his house - he had some amazing kites and we had so much fun running down the big hill to get them in the air. I decided the kids were ready for some kite-flying of their own and after buying (and then returning) a cool but huge Elephant kite from Costco, I realized that dollar store kites were more their speed. My kids were quite excited to have Dora staring them down as they tried to make her fly. Two dollars and an afternoon well spent!

So Sweet! I've been wanting to fly kites so badly! Maybe I'll see if I can find one at the dollar store too.

Loved visiting with you! How amazing that you were in town at just that time!

I love the kite flying. I think we have a kite at our house. We can take the kids kite flying where the wind really blows.
