Kite Flying Sky Watch!

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!

Let's go fly a kite  ~  and send it soaring

Chris flying a kite
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!
Chris flying a kite2

When you send it flyin' up there
All at once you're lighter than air

Chris flying a kite

You can dance on the breeze
Over 'ouses and trees
With your fist 'olding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh!
Let's go fly a kite!

photos of husband, Chris, flying a kite at Indian Lake this summer
The sparkling stars are in our imaginations ;o)

Fly through the skies around the world

I am also participating in Friday's Pretties.

At first I thought the natural photos couldn't be improved but your stars seem to add magic to your day.

As so often with your beautiful pics and descriptive words, this post reminds me of a song (albeit a sad one): Nanci Griffith, "Coming down in the rain"

This is the first time I've seen anyone flying a kite from the middle of a lake! Cool! Pretty, colorful kite too. :)

I Love Pretty Little Things said...

That looks like a wonderful afternoon activity! Flying a kite from a boat...I am just imagining you rowing like crazy to get that kite up in the air. :)

Barb said...

I see the small boy in Chris' smile.

Rossel said...

i remember when i was a child, my father used to make big kites with whistles. i can't hold its string because it was so big that can't be maneuver by a child so my father just tied the string on a tree and let it fly alone.

great shots! thanks for sharing.

Mary Poppins, you have captured the magic to a tee, twinkling stars and all.
There is nothing like it with a stiff breeze blowing.
Wonderful post Gemma.
