Lets Go Fly a Kite!

Last Friday was our 5th Engagement Anniversary.

I like celebrating. So we celebrate things that don't really matter or exist and most people forget about. I don't forget dates. (For example. My first kiss was Dec 12, 1999. Why do I know this date? I have NO idea. But I will probably never forget it. Also, don't judge on the date. Yeah, I was 12. Moving on.)

So, on March 11, I told Cody we needed to do something fun and new and exciting to celebrate. It also needed to be kid friendly since we didn't really want to get a babysitter. I first thought bowling would be fun, but we decided it'd be too stressful with Preslie running all around. So instead, we got a kite!

We didn't really think it was going to work since there was no wind. Look at that flag. It didn't move once.

Chloe was very involved in putting the flag together

It was pretty funny at first, trying to explain to Chloe how to fly a kite. Cody gave her the string and said, Ok, now run! So she threw the string on the ground and started running away. Kids are so funny!
This was right after she dropped the kite and started running. She was so confused why we were laughing so hard!

LOVE this picture!
Chloe LOVED flying the kite and asks almost every day if she can go fly her kite with daddy again. 



After we decided the wind wasn't going to pick up, we went to the playground to play. This is one of the best playgrounds around here. We love it SO much! It's pretty big and there's a lot of things to play on so even when there are a lot of kids everyone is spread out pretty good.








After kite flying and playground playing, we went back to our roots with some Taco Bell. Unfortunately, there were a bunch of loud and super stinky (they were all smoking) teenagers there. When I walked in, one of them even asked me if I wanted a cigarette. When I said no, thank you, he asked, "Does the baby want one?" I didn't say anything, but I wanted to kick him.
Cody tried to get Chloe to eat it. She isn't a huge fan. He even said, "I never thought I'd have to make my kids eat Taco Bell."


Preslie liked her burrito!!

After Taco Bell we went home and had some ice cream! (well, the girls did. Cody and I passed on that part)
They definitely loved it!!!
It was such a fun night!

It makes me so happy to see the fun things that you're doing! I love that you document the activities so that you can have a 'journal' of the little ones! They are sooooo sweet and so precious! Happy 5th anniversary of your engagement!! :)
