We're taking the Outdoor Challenge, are you? Check out 5 Orange Potatoes for more details!
Almost missed out on this beautiful day today by waiting until 7:00 pm before I took the kids outside. Granted, they spent most of the day playing outside without me, but still I want to get out there with them every day. So I decided to take advantage of a windy day and let the kids fly their new kites that they got for Easter.
We have a really retro park with the metal playground and the creaky old swings just a block away and while it's not the best playground ever, it does have a soccer field which is clear of trees and perfect for kite flying.
The girls had a lot of fun watching their kites soar on the breeze and Alex got a good laugh out of the event as well. We stuck around and played on the slide and swings afterward and got to enjoy the lovely song of a Robin that stuck around in a tree for quite sometime to keep us entertained.
I have to say, taking the kids out and doing fun things with them has sure been earning me a lot more "I love you's" and that is always something to smile and be grateful for.
Make each day count!
