Let's go fly a kite

It's spring break, it's cold, but the sky is blue and the sun is shining and we're itching to get outside.  So we took the new kite to the beach!

 It was a team effort to get it up, but....
 It worked!
 After a few pointers from daddy,
Elizabeth was on her own!
Last night we all went to see the new animated movie The Croods.  It was a Neanderthal meets Cro-Magnon and full of survival type scenes.   This morning, true to form, the girls were assigning roles and replaying the movie in every way they could.
At the beach Adelaide noticed the cliff that separates us from the beach and declared it the mountain from the movie.  In the movie this mountain needed to be climbed.  So, without a thought she and daddy climbed it.  It's a very high cliff.  She did really well ...
 until she looked back.  Then she got scared and wanted to be done.  Well, when you're halfway up (or down) what looks like a mountain, what are you going to do???  You tell daddy you "want to be done now."  And HE gets to Sherpa you down the cliff.
 It was pretty scary for Daddy, too, I think, trying to find footing and not drop his Adelaide.

Back home they gave in.
