another first

As parents, we constantly look forward to our children's "firsts."  We wonder when they will roll over, sit up, crawl, walk, speak, read, etc.  I'm not sure it ever ends!

I have a confession - until last weekend, my children had never flown a kite.

It's funny to think about.  Sauce had bought a kite last spring at AWANAs and asked me all summer to fly it.  Then Aunt Louie came to visit for Rufus's birthday and brought all kinds of treats and presents - two of which were kites.

We have plenty of wind around here, for even on a seemingly non-windy day, the fields at the park are fueled by the winds that come down the mountain canyons.

We spent almost two hours at the park flying kites with Aunt Louie and I took some pretty sweet pictures of the boys and their "first" kite flying day.
