Let's Go Fly A Kite

Solana always notices the wind. If there's even a slight breeze she asks if it's a good day to fly a kite. Unfortunately for her the answer is usually "no." It's either snowing or about to rain or dinner's cooking or something. She got lucky on this particular day. I finished dinner early and we left for the park as soon as we were done. Solana and Dave spent a really long time trying to get the diamond kite up but just couldn't. Poor Solana was running her little heart out. It seemed perfectly windy for kite flying but that darn kite just wouldn't catch the wind. They finally gave up and got the butterfly kite out. Success! It looked really pretty.

I like how you can see the kite string in this picture. It looks so LONG and makes Solana look so tiny.

Chloe could even see the bullerbye. She wanted to touch it.

That really is a pretty bullerbye kite! I'm happy Solana finally got the kite up! We've been through the same thing and it's so sad when it just won't work!

I'm happy the bullerbye worked! Actually, I'm surprised Solana didn't want to start with that one. Kite flying is such a feel good activity. I can't wait until we can go out and fly kites with Grant! It always reminds me of Corpus. thanks for sharing!!!
