Ok, so I need to preface this post with a story from our vacation last year. Last year, we thought it would be fun to fly a kite at the beach. Well, it got stuck in a tree. The boys thought long and hard, and decided to throw a football at it to get it out. The football got stuck in the tree. I'm pretty sure they don't want us coming back there.So, this year, I got 2 kites, each of the kids picked one out. Pearl got a squid, and Sam got a dragon. This is a sweet picture of Jared and Sam and the kite. How cute, right?
This is a picture of Jared giving Sam the kite string to hold. What a big boy!
This is a picture of what happens when a three year old is in charge of the kite string and LETS GO (duh, who would have thought that was a possibility?)
This is Jared and Uncle Tim looking very intelligently into the tree where the kite string was stuck.
Yep, it's up there. And the tree just doesn't look sturdy enough to climb...
Jared's brilliant plan - get kite #2 tangled up with the first one and bring them both down.
Luckily, while Jared was at the beach getting the other kite in the air, Uncle Tim climbed the tree and passed me down the reel. I brought it in far enough that the kite fell, and Peter unhooked the string so we were able to thread it out of the tree. Phew! Good thing we didn't bring a football this year...
