Go Fly a Kite

March 13, 2011

My friend Mary had mentioned flying kites the other day which inspired my family to do just that. We headed to the lake. As soon as we arrived at a good private area we spotted “The Eagle.

After the eagle flew away we pulled out our kite. It was very hard to try to get the silly thing to get air born at first.

So while Adam was waiting for us to figure it out he got busy making a volcano in the sand.

Adam also made this little “friend” Freddy out of shells.

Austin found a damselfly that had broken wings so the kids looked him over and placed him in the high grass for safety. We have learned the difference in a damselfly and a dragonfly is the position of it’s wings.

Once we figured out to tie the “tail” to each wing and to the “tail” area and that it took two people to get it air born, we had a great time!

One of us had to hold it up while the person flying the kite kept tension on the string and the wind blowing against it almost did the sling shot affect and it would soar into the sky.

Stewart and I took turns helping them launch it.

Adam was trying to fly it and run with it.

Once he stopped running he flew it really well.

Anna tended to make it do loopy loops most of the time.

Looking at her “technique” I understand why. She would make big circles with her arms trying to control it.

Austin seemed to master it effortlessly.

He takes it pretty serious.

Anna decided she liked launching it the better than flying it so she let the boys do the flying.

Austin flew it to the moon.

It really did look like it was “to the moon” with the string fully extended.

Awesome picture Austin took, check out the sun’s reflection in the cloud.

Anna ran all over the beach while Austin was flying the kite hollering “Crash it , Crash it!”

We had some problems with the strings coming off the kite. Hmm, I wonder why that is?

IMG_1896

Maybe because little feet kept stepping on them and getting them wrapped around their legs.

So the “launcher” then had to become the “kite repair person”.

IMG_1912

While waiting for repairs to be made we had a visit from some American Coots swimming by.

I love this picture of Austin, my little baby boy has grown into a fine young man. He is fully enjoying tormenting his sister.

IMG_1886

Austin grew tired of Anna telling him to crash it so he started aiming it at her and dive bombing her with it.

We had a really great day flying the kite and just spending time at the lake as a family. We are greatly blessed.
