Let’s go fly a kite

On our last day of Spring Break we loaded the whole family up to go to Grandpa T’s house.  They had a couple of sprinkler heads that needed fixed, and Chase is there go-to guy when that happens.    I tried to stay home,  told him all I needed was a break from the kids after 2 weeks of spring break.  But I ended up going. After the sprinklers were fixed we left the kids with grandma and grandpa for lunch while we went on a “date” to home depot for our sprinkler needs, and swung through the drive through at carl’s Jr for our lunch.    Then we collected the kids and headed for home.  I really thought that was it for the day.  The kids would just hang out and make messes, Chase would play WOW for the rest of the day, and I would go grocery shopping.  But then Chase asked me- You wanna go fly a kite?  It was a beautifull day for it, so we began our search for a kite.  We didn’t own one, and our kids had never flown a kite- ever.  It took 2 different wal-marts to find one, and when we  finally got one, it only cost 99 cents.    We went to the big park in our neighborhood and the kids had a blast with it.  They all took turns, and even a little girl that we never met before took a turn with it.  (little blond girl- sorry we never learned your name)  The kids were also really good about taking turns since they had the playground to occupy them when it was someone else’s turn with the kite.
