Go Fly a Kite !

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 ...

Let's go fly a kite!

Avery is so beautiful, and she's so pretty in her pink. Hope y'all have fun flying kites today. We don't have any wind yet here in Brookhaven.

My Girlie-Girl and I had a cuddly time just now, as I showed her the kites, and how a "big girl" holds tight to the string so it will fly right and not fly away.

We'll go let her pick out one this weekend, I think, and I hope the wind stirs, because she'll be ready to rip open that package the minute we leave the store.
