Kite Flying

One evening last week it was windy enough to fly a kite at Horseshoe Park. The boys had picked a Spiderman kite that day and were super excited. The wind was good, but not great, so Brent spent a good deal of time running so the kite would stay aloft. The yahoos thought it was great fun and loved running after the kite. Andrew was able to hold the string and fly it for a bit too.

getting set up - Brent is telling Andrew how to hold the kite and wait for him to say "Let go!"

I love Andrew's face. He was so excited the kite was working!

There is lots of waiting when the wind isn't constant.

His smile didn't show up in the picture, but it was about a mile wide.

Coleman had a lot of fun chasing the tail while they were trying to get the kite in the air.

We bought a kite when it was really windy here but haven't flown it, yet. The wind has since stopped. :-( I'm hoping that we can take it to the beach and have some wind there.
