For his ninth birthday, Austin got this cool kite from a friend.
Because it has wind restrictions (can't be too windy, has to be windy enough...), we've been waiting to take it out to fly. Last Friday seemed ideal.
Until we arrived at the school playground. Then the wind died down almost completely.
Undaunted, the kids had fun running back & forth across the playground, trying to get it up in the air (& keep it there.) :)
Finally, after being tired from running, Austin decided to use his bike in the effort.
So fun how such a little thing can bring so much pleasure!
