Lets go fly a kite!

Last weekend we spent some outdoorsy time with our friends the Brysons. The weather was great that weekend so we decided to take advantage of it and spend some time outdoors. The place we went to is a huge naturey park just a few minutes from our house with playgrounds, camping areas, lots of open space for the kids to run and explore, ponds, trees and pavillions. We all had a great time. It was really windy so we brought our kites and let 'em loose.
Joey brought his RC boat and the kids had the most fun throwing sticks at it:)

I think Melissa looks so cute holding a baby girl, doesn't she? Someday Melissa will have her girl and maybe someday I'll have a boy:) Melissa is outnumbered at her house like Joey is at ours.

The men lit a fire at the end of the day and we roasted some marshmallows for some delicious S'mores. The kids really loved that!

The perfect end to our day of "camping"

Smores and kites- it just doesn't get any better than that. How fun! Kaitlin has been begging to go kite flying. We better get our booties in gear.

What a fun day. That is my idea of camping. I should initiate this plan....in like 5 months when it thaws out, of course.

I can't comprehend how y'all are wearing short sleeves in January. I swear, I start singing Bowling for Soup's song "Come Back to Texas" on a daily basis...recently more like an hourly basis! Looks like lots of fun! It's -15 here today by the way.

Everytime I see kite flying I remember, Cole Park, Buda, and now McKinney oh yeah and was it Mary Poppins? Looks like great fun by all. Good job manuvering that boat there son, Captain of your yacht.

What a fun outing! How very Mary Poppins-ish for you to fly kites! We used to do that all the time in Oregon--good times!! And we LOVE us some s'mores by the campfire!
