Let's go fly a kite, and send it soaring.
Written on September 24, 2009 by Kevin.
The other day we headed out to the park to fly kites and the wind was perfect. We have taken the kids out to fly kites in the past but never with this amount of consistent wind. Rylan's kite flew great and it was up in the air for a very long period of time. If you ask him, he will tell you that he almost hit a passing plane and it would have stuck to it because the plane had gum on it. Kaitlyn's kite is your old fashion diamond shape and it just didn't want to stay up too well but we had fun chasing after it together and throwing it back in the air.
While it is getting cooler, the Arizona summer is still in effect. We still have the hot sun and heat that makes it difficult to be outside too long. The kid's mom got sunburned while the kids and I just got a bit toasty. After the kids woke up today, Rylan had a short conversation about his mom's red skin that went something like this...
Rylan: Your skin is still hot.
Mom: The sun is a big ball of fire and it's very hot.
Rylan: *serious face* Well somebody had better put some water on it.
