Austin Kite Festival

The Austin Kite Festival was supposed to be two weeks ago, during the weekend we had aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins in town. But much to everyone's disappointment, it got postponed for a week due to cold, rainy weather.

It turns out postponing it for a week was the best thing the organizers could have done, because the weather this last Sunday was GORGEOUS. Sunny. Warm. Breezy. They could not have gotten more perfect kite-flying weather if they had designed the day specifically for the festival! Another wonderful side effect of the postponement was that Ali's Bubbie and Zeydie were in town visiting! It gave us a wonderful activity to fill our Sunday with. We packed a picnic lunch, loaded up the camp chairs, and made a day of it.

Ali did awesome (of course!). She loves being outside, and with so much going on--dogs and strollers and adults and babies, and just a *few* kites--she had a never-ending supply of entertainment. She even managed to take a brief cat nap in my arms, a rare treat for me these days!

Enjoy the pics!
