Over the past several years, we have made a tradition of going to the kite festival in Salem, and it gets more fun each year (as the kids get older)!  The weather was great–not too hot, not to cold, partly cloudy.  It wasn’t super windy so that made flying kites a little tricky, but it wasn’t too bad.  It ended up raining less than an hour after we got home, so I was glad we went early in the day!

First, the kite festival in years past…

Big guys Sammy, Eli, and toddler Abey! 

Don’t you just want to eat him up?! 

Eating lunch by the gigantic kites! 

This one’s here every year and we’re always debating what it is…  

Me and E 

Not sure what we’re so sad about, but I thought it was cute 

Coming soon…decorating and flying our own kites!!!  The kids did a great job with them, especially given some wind issues.  🙂
