Preparing for lift-off
Success! Isn't it a ferocious sight! We thought the birds might be a little nervous!
The inevitable not-so-soft landing.
I have to say that, as a novice kite flyer, I was rather impressed with Ben's kite flying skills! I must be aerodynamically challenged, because the instructions he was giving to the kids and I were new to me! But thanks to him, we were able to keep it up for quite a while!
Later that night we had popcorn as we watched Phinneus and Ferb and sent the kids to bed so Ben and I could have a "date". We put Jeff to bed and started watching "Becoming Jane" which I was kind of disappointed with. I don't know if it was the movie, or my snoring date, or the fact that my baby was sleeping and I wasn't. Even now, here I am at 11:45 pm and blogging instead of taking advantage a few precious minutes of sleep. When will I ever learn?
Well, thats our weekend in a nutshell. We love these kind of days where there is no pressure to do anything or be anywhere, but wish we had family and friends close by to enjoy them with. We miss you all!
