Kite flying fun!

Having been stuck in the house for most of the week with Monkey covered in chicken pox. It was lovely today to get out side and enjoy some much needed fresh air.

We treated the boys to a trip to our local (little) cinema, The Wharf in Tavistock, to see the Lego Movie this afternoon followed by a quick trip to the park. The two older boys loved the movie, as did moors-daddy but Worm fell asleep about 15 minutes in and woke up about five minutes from the end! Typical!

On returning home we decided on a whole family dog walk, with a football and 2 kites. It was just breezy enough and Worm and Beanie both flew the kites for quite some time whilst Monkey played football with moors-daddy.

Worm loved flying the kite. 

I think he may have been a little optimistic with the sun hat, but he insisted on wearing it!

The two boys flew them really well, keeping them far enough apart so they didn't tangle up. 

After they had had enough of kite flying they moved onto Rough and Tumble football. 
The boys version of football but where moors-daddy is allowed to push and throw them onto the floor every time they go in for a tackle.  A much loved game that always results in grass stained knees!

Love living where we do, and having the countryside on out doorstep!

  1. Great family fun with kite flying and football - and all for free! I'm glad that Monkey is on the mend and you can all get out and enjoy the sunshine. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
