Let's go fly a kite!

I haven't blogged about our big girl in a while and wanted to post some pictures of a fun afternoon we had with her. She's at such a fun age. She keeps us laughing and only makes us pull our hair out a small percentage of the time. Gotta love the TERRIFIC TWOS!! ;)

The girl remembers EVERYTHING she sees on TV.  She sees it once and she will quote it over and over and over. She was watching one of our favorites - The Berenstain Bears.  It was all about brother and sister bear entering a kite flying contest.  We listened to the girl talk about kites non-stop after watching that episode.  She would make Alex lie on the floor beside her and she would pretend her helium balloons were kites.  I saw a kite in Target and couldn't resist buying it for her.  We waited for the perfect day with lots of wind and declared it KITE DAY.  We of course sang the song from Mary Poppins the entire time and girlfriend had a blast.  We had neighbors coming out to watch her fly this thing. I think they were impressed with her kite-flying skills. ;) 


Her duck kite in the air!


Watching it fly!


Daddy handed it over to her once it was up in the air and she did a great job.


She was flying it with one hand!


She decided to take a rest and sit down while flying her kite.


It was a fun afternoon with our big girl!


Here's a little video of her flying her kite with Daddy.
