Let's Go Fly A Kite

For years now my dad has been trying to find a kite to fly with the kids. We have gone through countless kites over the years and never had any that were very fun or that lasted a long time. Until now it seems. While my parents were visiting Utah for Memorial Day, they stopped off at a specialty toy store in Provo and found a parachute like kite to try out. We see these kites a lot at the beach. It worked... we had a lot of fun flying it and watching it in the field across the street from our hotel in Logan, UT.

Brok really enjoyed flying the kite. He was really good at it too.

We had a lot of fun watching the kite. It was able to dive and fly really high. I never thought I would have so much fun watching a kite for 2 hours.

Laura's turn to send the kite up into the air. I was surprised at how many shots I was able to get of her sending it up.

I adore my little brother Westley. He was having so much fun in the field. He was running and jumping around. He would gather up all the dandelions and use them for "ammo". He had a small stick that was used for a "lighter" and he pretended to blow things up. He would count down and we all had to play along.

Counting down.... FIVE......

Here are all the kids pretending to prepare themselves for the blow!

(but you can see from his face that he didn't say boom... he made a sound of blowing things up that only boys can make)

Here he is trying to blow Laura up (can you see the dandelions in her hood?). Charnae looks worried but Laura just looks annoyed. HA
