Let's go fly a kite

Katelyn got this wonderful kite for her birthday. It is huge and awesome. She wanted to go fly it the day after her birthday. It was a windy day, but the wind was not really predictable. It would come and then die down. Sometimes there was no wind. But we did manage to get the kite up in the air. We live on a cult a sack and so we went out in the circle and tried to fly her kite with some success. A lot of nose dives to the ground and Patrick even managed to get it stuck in the neighbors tree once. Not fun. But luckily we were able to get it out without calling the fire department!!
Katelyn loved it, as did the rest of the kids. She kept saying things like "look, it's a baby bird learning to fly." And " I didn't know it could do tricks like that". "Look everyone, it's flying, it's really flying." It was really fun. 
Here's the kite stuck in the tree. 
 Patrick was able to get it out of the tree with only a few lost streamers. He is amazing !! 
Here it is finally on the ground and both girls were so happy to have it out of the tree. They ran straight for it just to make sure it was alright. 
We all had a great time together flying the new kite.
