Kite Flying

We had such a fun day today..we took the girls to the store so they could each pick out a kite to fly. You can see each of their choices in the pictures. We also got a quick lunch to take with us so it was kind of a picnic too. There wasn't much wind so Amber's flew much better than Whitney's due to it being the cheaper one and consequently the lighter one. So we had to kind of take turns. The girls had so much fun and afterwards we went and bought Whitney a soccer ball because she has been wanting to learn how to play.

Here was the conversation on the way home .

Whitney: "Mom, Dad will you teach me how to play soccer?"

Arin laughs: "That's great neither of us played soccer, and she picks that sport to play."

Joe:"That's shows how much you know me."

He played soccer??? What?? Since when?? Anyway it was funny because then:

Whitney: "Dad can I wear your soccer shoes from when you were a kid?"

Joe just had to laugh at that. "Yeah Whitney I will just pull them out of my back pocket."

Anyway it was alot of fun kicking the ball around with the girls after that. It was such a great Saturday afternoon-the weather was perfect and so was the time we spent with eachother.

Sounds like fun!! It was a gorgeous day here as well. The kids even went to grandma's and went swimming in her pool. The water was freezing and so were they, but it was hot out. We all got a little color. Sounds like you had a fun day.
