The Kite Festival

The guys and I had a great weekend! It was Austin's annual Kite Festival in Zillker Park. If you aren't aware, Zillker Park is Austin's largest park that is the home for tons of festivals (like Austin City Limits and SXSW) as well as other fun family treats. It is right on the river and close to downtown, so it is a beautiful place to fly a kite! :)

We actually decided to go to the festival because Aunt Kellye was singing at the sculpture gardens and so we thought it would be a great time for the boys to hear her do her thang. (Since she usually sings late at night and in jazz clubs and bars that wouldn't be appropriate to bring a 2 year old to.) However, fate didn't have work it out that way for us to get to hear Kellye sing on Sunday because after walking an hour and a half just to get into the park, we were all so exhausted we just plopped our picnic gear down and had a rest. By the time things were all eaten, Kellye's show was long gone. :(

However, we did have a nice day in the park watching all the fabulous different kind of kites and contraptions flying in the skye!

Here are a few pics from Sunday at the Kite Festival.
