Go Fly a Kite

One of the first things we did was get each of the kids (except Boo Boo Bear) a kite from Kitty Hawk Kites. They each got to pick the ones they wanted, so there was a wide variety. Everyone had fun flying them, and learned a couple of things along the way. Like when you let 500 feet of string run wild it takes a long time to get it all wound back up. Or when you walk underneath everyone else's kite, you're probably going to get all tangled up. But isn't it fun???

The last five pictures are from the Rogallo Kite Festival at Jockey's Ridge State Park. Every year they have a kite festival there, just down the road from the Wright Brothers Museum. We didn't stop since it was on the day we were leaving, but just drove by to look and take pictures.
