Anyway, back to our Sponge Bob Kite. Joe figured that Grace would really get a kick out of it, IF we managed to get it off the ground. And if we didn't get it flying, then it wouldn't be a huge loss since it was only a dollar.
The following weekend, we had a nice family day planned. Starting with breakfast at our favorite breakfast buffet.
After coming home from breakfast, I went inside to put a few things away. When I looked out our back window I saw Joe in the middle of the yard with Sponge Bob soaring high in the sky. Grace was loving it!!! She had a huge smile on her face while pointing to "Bob Bob" in the sky!
Later, while Joe was fixing our lawn mower, I decided to try my hand at kite flying! I was tickled pink to see the kite take off into the sky! I felt like a little kid! I even let Grace have a turn!
Grace also enjoyed some time playing with some of her outdoor toys. Her favorite is her bounce house that Joe's family bought her for her first birthday last year.
We've also been trying to get her to ride on her motorized 4-wheeler. She mostly just stands beside it and pushes the button to make the wheels turn!
Here, she swiped one of Joe's wrenches and used it as a drum stick on her (empty) paint can! Grace loves music!
What a great day! Not only did we discover that we all enjoyed kite flying, we also learned that Grace knew the word kite! I had no idea! Gotta love Sesame Street and Nick Jr!
Since then, we've flown Sponge Bob a few more times. Making the most out of that $1 impulse buy!
