Let's go fly a kite!

The weather here has been amazing the past couple of days, so we decided to take Talan & Trista to the park for a fall picnic. We picked up some subs on the way and ate on a blanket with the peaceful.

Scott and Talan started flying a kite and Trista and I sat and watched (and took pictures of course)! Trista HATES the sunlight so I had to get creative and shade her with blankets and anything else I could use to make a tent. I just love this picture of Talan looking up at the kite. He looks so small and the leaves are absolutely gorgeous!

To sum it all up - it's been a great week. Lots of family time and beautiful weather!

On another note, I snapped a picture of Miss Trista holding her own bottle!! Can you even believe it? She still likes to act like she doesn't know how so that we will hold it for her. I cannot believe she will be 8 months old next week. Where does the time go?


  1. I love the pics and it looks like you guys had a great time!! Ryan would NEVER hold her own bottle. haha. We got her off the bottle though and onto sippy cups when she was 9 months old and she held those just fine. haha. stubborn little ones. Keep posting the pics!!

  2. Cute pics! I always loved it when my babies held their bottles for the first time.
    Glad you guys had a great time flying kites!
