Let's Go Fly A Kite!

We repeatedly sing "Let's Go Fly a Kite" in our house from Mary Poppins, River's favorite movie right now. Yesterday I was resting while Ryan and River played with sidewalk chalk, and Ryan came running in the house, "Where's the kite?" We've been waiting for the perfect day to take River to fly his own kite instead of watching Jane and Michael Banks fly theirs. What makes the perfect day to fly a kite? Sunny, Windy, and we were all home at the same time!!

We all threw on some clothes, and to be honest, none of us had brushed our hair or our teeth, but we went on our first kite flying adventure!! River had fun flying his kite....for about 15 minutes, and then the field of grass won over. I think Ryan and I had more fun kite flying! All in all great success for our first kite flying adventure as a family.

Here are some videos of our kite flying:
