Warm weather and making kites

The kids have almost cleared the backyard of who knows how many years of leaves. Thank you 70 degree days. Inspired by the wind billowing through the lawn and leaf bags as they were being filled, the girls decided to make kites and take them to the park. We used plastic grocery bags and bamboo skewers. We really couldn't get them to fly. I think they may have been too small. So if the weather permits, we will make bigger ones tomorrow and try them again. Despite the kite failure, the kids had a great time at the park and I enjoyed my bare feet touching the cool grass.

And, just because it was such a nice day, I thought I'd get some pictures of the girls all together. But to start you off, here's the best picture that anyone has ever taken of any baby EVER! Well, probably not, but I think it's pretty darn cute!

Now on to the pictures from the park....

The four ladies. It was pretty much impossible to get everyone to look at me at the same time, so I gave up trying.

There were big huge blossoms of some sort on the trees. Bijou is sporting hers as a hat.

The oldest and youngest of our little tribe. They have lots of moments like this. Jena is like the second mother.

Ashni was trying to get her to smell the flower not eat it.

She is still wearing that blossom hat!

Just the ladies today.

It was a good day...


  1. I love the pictures! Looks like everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather.

  2. These are the best kind of days. The kites look great! Makes me want to dig out our kite and keep and eye out for a windy day. Beautiful pics of your kids!
