#13 – Fly a kite! {52 outdoor activities}

{52 outdoor activities} is a series featuring a unique idea for each week of the year to inspire you and your kids to get outside for some fun.

 Finally, this weekend, we had a day when it was windy enough and sunny enough and not raining and we were all together and we got to fly her kite!IMG_0721 (3)

Daddy got things going with proper kite technique lessons.   For being a $.50 kite, it did really great!

Then C took the helm.  We didn’t get a picture, but during this part, P asked “Can I lay down?  In grass?” and proceeded to crack herself up laying down in the field and looking up at the kite.


And all afternoon, I kept singing to myself, “Let’s go fly a kite…up to the highest height…let’s all go…fly a kite!”  It was a lot of fun and we’ll do it again soon.
