One of the simplest pleasures in life is flying a kite, no matter what age you are.
Last year, we bought our little granddaughter Avery a Dora the Explorer kite and she was so excited learning how to fly it.
Here are some pictures I captured of her first "kite flying adventure."
I wouldn't take anything for that look of pure joy on her little face.
Yesterday, Avery asked me when it would be time to fly her kite again, and I told her as soon as it's windy enough. It's supposed to be a beautiful day here today, so perhaps Dora and Avery will get to "explore the skies" again.
And speaking of exploring the skies, it seems that kite-flying is a serious sport in some parts of the world. Take a look at these photos of some beautiful kites I found the Internet.
My favorite is this ship kite. Isn't it amazing!
I would love to see one like this in the air ...
