Let’s go try a kite…

The wind and our skeelz were not on our side, but we still had fun.

One particular source of inspiration was the Hungry March Band:

Watching this band got me thinking about some Halloween possibilities. Sadly, Jason is no longer in possession of his trombone….hmmm…might have to hop on over to ebay.

Look at my lovelies:

I feel like taking my daughters to a kite festival and watching them choose to make a cape and get their face painted is fleeting.  In a heartbeat they will be too embarrassed, roll their eyes and maybe even sleep in on a Saturday, instead of participating in innocent, imaginative play. I have been saying this to both of them for the past several years, and I found myself uttering it once again at the festival:

Stop. Growing.
