let's go fly a kite!

It's a bird ...

It's a plane ...

It's ... NEMO!!!

Yesterday, we took the children out to fly a kite for the first time.

Initially, they held on tight and were very engaged.

Eventually, they were able to drink juice AND fly a kite.

William became so adept he could do it laying down.

If one thinks that a day at the park flying a kite and rolling around on the grass with their father would be a happy event for children...

One would be correct.


  1. I came across your blog when I clicked on the "Next Blog" button. I don't usually do that since some strange stuff can come up, but I was pleasantly surprised this time around. Great writing, beautiful kids...I'll be coming back to read more!

  2. Soooo cute! This age is the best... but I've been saying that since our kids were born! LOL!

  3. Ill bet that they can even sing the song "Let's go fly a kite"
    if not, I will send the words. They look very happy. I miss them.

  4. quite possibly one of the cutest things I have ever seen.

  5. Love The PICTURES! SO Cute! and just read the clip about the questions answered... One of the names was MARGARET??? Really?? CAN WE TRY AGAIN... This time for a GIRL???? Just one more time...PLEEEZE?

    Ok I know it was one of many names and if I had known that I would have put in the order.... however, So thankful for Henry. You've made my day. I was feeling all depressed so Thanks! Ah the simple things.
    Love, MARGARET!

  6. That sounds like it was a lot of fun! Your Nemo kite worked much better than ours. Our Nemo kite was shaped like Nemo and apparently was only a novelty because it wouldn't fly AT ALL!

  7. I'm finally delurking here. I've been reading for a few weeks.

    It looks like a great day for kites. I've been wondering when my son will be old enough to enjoy that. I don't think it would hold his interest yet. Cute pictures of the kiddos though.

  8. One of my absolute favorite pastimes, and endlessly fascinating for dad and the kids.

    Such sweet photos.
