Let’s Go Fly a Kite: Lake Whitney State Park

During Spring Break 2010 my 2 eldest kids went and spent most of the week with my parents at their camp site at Lake Whitney. 

Mary and I joined them for Friday night Fajitas and marsh mellows by the campfire.

Earlier that day the kids flew kites.  Max let one go so high it unraveled all the way and blew far away.  Max cried and cried about loosing that kite.  I’m glad he’s sentimental like me.

We had a great time!  Here are some pictures from that day:
