every august, dave’s company hosts a picnic at a local park. there is food, a bouncy house, games or toys or something like that for the kids, etc.
we went right after church on sunday.
the littles hit the bouncy house straight off, and then discovered the table full of kites they had out for the kids. seriously TONS of kites. so we assembled one for layla and figured we’d all go fly it. it wasn’t exactly windy. shane had a little success, as long as he kept moving. but then layla wasn’t so thrilled because he had commandeered her kite. I kept asking if he wanted his own, and he kept saying no… eventually he gave her her kite and wandered off. when I asked where he was going, he said, “to get a kite.” alrighty then.
micah was not particular about the specifics of getting it aloft and making it stay up there… as long as he was running and it was up in the air behind him, he was “flying a kite” and happy as could be!
there were also bubbles for the kids and sand pails and shovels. once again, shane and the littles went out to the beach to play in the sand. once again, shane did not want his own bucket. once again, he commandeered his sister’s…
and then it was time to come home and let the dog out of the shop.
