Kids and Kites

Over the weekend, David and I were delighted to discover that we are the parents of two very adept kite flyers.

We went to Mayor Daley's Kids and Kites Festival at Montrose Harbor on Saturday. I can't say enough good things about this (free! free!) event. The kids got to assemble and decorate their own kites before they took off running down a hill like crazed monkeys trying to get their contraptions to take to the sky. When the thrill of kite flying wore off, we headed over to the craft tent where the kiddos painted little kite magnets to take home. We stopped by the Whole Foods tent for a free apple and picked up another free kite to take home. I couldn't have asked for a better family activity on a beautiful fall day.

This event takes place in the fall and again in the spring. We are totally going to go again in the spring (and you should too).

I'm envious of the vests and long sleeves. The chill just hasn't quite hit here...yet.
