Kite Festival


Kathryn and I had so much fun this weekend going to the Blue Ridge Kite Festival on Saturday. We were all going to go as a family, but Jackson wasn't feeling well, so Johnny stayed home with him while Kathryn and I had a fun mommy/daughter date. Here's Kathryn looking like big stuff!
They had free kites for kids. They even got to decorate their own kites. Kathryn chose a purple kite, and liked putting stickers on it and coloring it!

Then we tied balloons on it to help it fly, and she carried it around proudly all day!
We weren't able to get it very high, but she didn't care!
Kathryn and mommy. She looks like she's making a tough face, but I think she actually had a mouth full of hotdog!
We had a special lunch of hot dogs and Cheetos (her first time trying them!). She ate the entire hot dog all by herself!
Then we got ice cream to share!
All the kites flying in the air.

When we got home, we found Daddy and Jackson like this. Daddy was enjoying watching golf with his boy. Jackson got a little tired!It was such a neat time to spend just with my girl. I've been wanting to take her on a special date for a long time now, and I'm so glad it worked out that we could do it. Of course, I was sad Jackson was sick and we couldn't all go as a family, but it all worked out!

Boy, I can't wait to stay with you all. I look forward to some fun times with Kathryn and hopefully some good snuggles with Jackson. :) And you all will have to be sure and get a date night while I am around.

So fun! Kathryn is really growing up. I have to ask you, have you ever cut her hair? It is beautiful! I am not sure what to do with Sierra's hair, you may have noticed, it is a crazy mess most of the time. I don't want to cut it though. I don't know what to do!

Kathryn is just beautiful. I hope Jackson is feeling better!

Blessings! :)
