Here is brother and sister trying to learn how to fly bro's two wire kite!!Success at last! For the moment! That kite was wild & tricky! What a blast!
Even mama and papa got into the act - mama was cold! It was about 55!
Even the grand kids got into the act! Fun was had by all! Today was a great day!

Where were you at? It doesn't look like the campground. For all of you outside the state of Michigan, Indian Lake Papa and Mama got back this past week from wintering in Florida, and just for them...we are predicted to have another snow fall the next two nights. Ug!! I'm guessing it doesn't happen, but just in case...it's a good thing they flew kites today!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Carol - we were over on the other side of the State. Do not use that
S N O W word on this blog! That is strictly forbidden! :o)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Robin - Family times are wonderful - my "kids" are 37 & 38 - today they were my young'ins ! :o)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - A wonderful day - We started the day by attending church together and had communion together. God is so good!

Indian Lake Papa said...

This is Mama We started the day at church too and we had communion together at the end of the service. it was a good sermon too. It was so good to be in church with our children and grandchildren. God is good! And our children and grandchildren are great too. :)

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter! I see she has Mama's good looks. :D heehee Well, and maybe a hint of yours as well. ;-) haha!

Thanks for the lovely words at my place today. :D

I feel like I really miss you Papa, I'm not in my normal blogging routine! I'll get back to it though. Promise! :D

Love you!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Brandy - miss you too - and we are even closer! Yep, she got her looks from mama - no doubt! Maybe some of her intellect and humility from me!

When I tell someone to go fly a kite, they don't usually do it! Happy Birthday to your daughter. As always, it's a pleasure to read your blog. Be blessed.

Tam said...

Indian Lake Papa said...

LA - There are times telling someone to go fly a kite is a good thing! :o)

Tam - I would have been tickled to have you there! It would have been a blast - plus you might have decided to put my son on your list!

Couldn't pass up your comment to Brandy about your intellect and humility..........uh, yeah!! lol

From the sounds of the weather forecast for the next couple of nights, I think we all should have stayed in Fl. until the middle of May. How will mama survive...she was always cold down there!!!!!

Indian Lake Papa said...

We had a great day Mandy! Wish you could have been there - family time is so precious!

Brandy said...

Papa, I got Dylan a kite for his birthday yesterday. :D I am hoping the wind picks up in the next day or so and we'll go try it out.

Today we (all 5 of us) went on a walk for SEVERAL HOURS. :D We went through the neighborhoods, to the shoppette, to the library where we stocked up on books, then we walked home and dropped off the strollers and then walked down the street to the park. :D Today was such a fun day!

Love you! :D

Tammy said...

Today was special Brandy - mama and I went hiking at a new place then went to a dinner and travelogue show this evening then made out in the back of the bus (heh heh) coming home!

Happy Birthday to your daughter!!!

The kite flying looks great. I haven't flown a kite in forever. there was someone in the park behind us flying one on Sunday and it was a blast to watch.

Family time is so special Brent - fight for it! Don't let work or church crowd family time out!
