Spring Break: Let's Go Fly A Kite!


       Nothing says Spring Break better than a fantastic kite festival in Austin!!  It was a perfect day for one as well- in the high 70s with a slight wind to lift all these kits up...and there were kites!!!


         Sis and her friend tried to get a little kite up, but for some reason, it just didn't want to fly.  It was one that was given to us and the parents suspect it was given away b/c of it's lack of flying abilities!



        But that didn't keep us from other fun activities at the festival:



Brody rock-climbed



Sis got her face-painted


And the Baby-boy just looked around in fascination.

 He had a prime seat!


          Afterwards, we tried a pizza joint in downtown Austin that has been recommended to us for years- Homeslice- uh, let's just say we didn't care about healthy eating that day- we were in heaven!!!!  It was a perfect family day.  And a great Spring Break Adventure!

What a fun time! I am totally embarrased to admit this...my boys have never flown a kite! GASP! We have bought kites...but we never think about it on a windy day! I hope that changes this year!

Holy climbing wall! I would be terrified. And your baby boy is enjoying my baby boy's favorite spot - on daddy's head :)

That looks amazing. You know what it reminds me of? I thought of the balloon festival in New Mexico - I've never been there, but I've seen pictures!
