Sunny Days

   We've had a great week here, weather-wise. I feel like I've been being spoiled! And good weather always makes me want to get outside and do things.

Like, last week I picked up Buddy from school and we had an impromptu picnic at the 400 block (a downtown gathering place). The new fountains were on, and Buddy quickly decided he needed to run through them!

Of course, the breeze made it a little chilly, afterwards. Notice the face paint, it was 'green day' at school and all the kids wore green clothes and helped clean up the playground, and their teacher promised them green face paint in exchange!

It's been pretty windy too, which means perfect weather for kite-flying. Buddy loves it, he giggles every time the kite sweeps or swoops, he loves to watch the kite climb higher and higher.

After this last kite excursion, the kite was totaled. The 'fins' were both ripped to shreds and the cross piece poked through the body of the kite. Guess it's time for a new, more heavy duty kite!

We leave on Thursday night to go to Ohio for my cousin's wedding, but first we have Buddy's graduation! Both of those things are going to be really fun, I'm looking forward to it all!


  1. This looks soooo fun! Can I be Buddy for a day?

  2. Sure! I never know when you're in town, gimme a call next time you're here and we'll play outside!
