Weekend Outings

Besides James' first soccer game, we did a few other fun things this weekend including going to the annual Zilker Park Kite Festival in Austin. It was a perfect day for it.

We brought Penny to the Festival. Here are her and Madeline on the bus ride into the park. Penny got lots of pats on the head and "aaaahhhh such a cute dog!" comments.

Stephen and I had some really yummy corndogs for lunch at the Festival. What did the kids want for lunch from there....snowcones.

Stephen helped the kids get their kites up in the air. The first spot we fly them was a bit crowded and it was easy to get your kite line tangles up. So we moved to the outer skirts of the park near the trees...

...Madeline got a lot of kite flying time there but it resulted in her kite getting stuck in a tree. There were some tears. Luckily it was only a $2 kite from HEB, so we bought her another one.

James picked out his Alien kite. He did good flying it. It was even windy enough that when we walked through the crowds, he flew his kite as he walked.

And the Festival left everyone tuckered out. You can't see her but Penny is behind the kid's bench in the jeep and she is laying down sleeping too.

Madeline also went with one of her best friends, Ashleigh, and her family to the Thunderhill Raceway opener. A stock car race track literally 5 min from our home. From what Ashleigh's mom told us...the girls had a blast. 

They got to meet a lot of the drivers and get their autographs. Fun, fun!
