Let’s Go Fly a Kite!

One of Elaine’s favorite movies is Mary Poppins.  Last fall I got two kites at a tag sale for $1.  We got to fly them one time, but Mommy isn’t very good with kites.  After our nap today, Daddy took us to the park to fly our kites.  It was nice and windy!

Elaine did a great job helping to get her kite in the air, and tugging on the string so it wouldn’t fall down.  She had a fabulous time!  Nolan’s kite ended up with a hole in it, and we couldn’t get it to stay in the air.  He didn’t seem too bothered by it, and enjoyed tinkering around the grass.  Elaine even shared her kite with Nolan {did that really happen???} but he wasn’t interested.

We had a few raindrops and it got dark, but we had a wonderful time.  Just like a typical girl, at one point Elaine was trying to multi-task.  She was flying her kite with one hand and “helping” Nolan with his kite with the other hand.  Elaine was funny trying to help with the kite, running back and forth, and telling Daddy how to fly it.

Here are a couple of videos.  It was very windy, so there is a lot of background noise.  I think you will still laugh!

She tried really hard, but that kite just wouldn’t go up!
