Yesterday, we planned on going to the science museum, and when we arrived, it just so happened to be the day of the Kite Festival! We spent most of the day there, picnicking, watching the kites, admiring the remote-control sailboats, and eventually buying our own orange kite to try. It turned out to be easy to fly and very satisfying for the boys. It was a beautiful day with plenty of sun - in fact, we got sunburned.
|Sebby flew an abandoned kite that we found.
|As always, the boys love the water.
|Beautiful flowers outside the museum.
|We did finally make it to the museum for an hour, to admire the Aztec and Maya artifacts.
|Sebby found a centipede friend.
|I couldn't help but take a shot of everyone pulling on the root just like the Russian "repka" story.
Then we cleared a little section to plant our watermelons, pumpkins, and sunflowers, and perhaps we'll add a few more things, too. It was quite a process getting all the roots out, especially those pernicious bamboo runners.
I also chopped down some of Bud's wild growing bamboo to make a teepee for the boys. It was going well until the wind blew it over!
This cardinal came and sang his heart out for us while we worked today. A beautiful day!
