Let's go fly a kite!

The fact that Colorado Springs weather is crazy makes living here very interesting!  Last week we had four inches of snow one day, and a glorious 55 degree afternoon just two days later.  You'd better believe that we took advantage of the warmth, especially because it fell on a Saturday.  

Garry and the Littles soaked up the sun and flew our big dragon kite in our cul-de-sac.  The exercise might have worked better in a park with more room to run, but as it was, the kite flew just fine and excited the kids to no end.  Even Kate had turns flying the dragon.  What fun!

Here's one of Lexi's more successful runs.

The whole experience brought back fond memories of flying the same kite with Zach at the "duck pond park" near our home in Beaverton, Oregon.  I remember it being a brilliant, sunny day and a magical afternoon with Zach, who was about five.  It really had nothing to do with the kite.  Much like Saturday, it was just a simple activity on an ordinary day that made the kids feel special and my mother heart full.
