Let's go fly a kite...

Any Mary Poppin's fans out there? Cause if you are, you'll remember this song:

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!

Classic movie, one of my favorites. When I was little I would draw chalk paintings on the sidewalk and pretend to 'jump' in them as they did, oh to be young with an imagination again!
Austin is a kick ass city, in case you haven't heard. Part of being a kick ass city is that you have things like, Kite Festivals. No rhyme or reason to the event, just a beautiful day, beautiful park, view of downtown, and 100's of kites. We took Brooklyn out there for a couple of hours and she had a blast - minus the part where a kite took a nose dive, and literally hit her nose. (Kimberly - you were right!).

Days like Sunday are my most favorite of days, relaxing with my family, people watching, enjoying the SUN...

..."oh, let's go fly a kite!"
