Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Let's go fly a kite!
Up to the highest height.
Let's go fly a kite,
And send it soaring,
Up through the atmosphere,
Up where the air is clear.
Oh, let's go fly a kite!
Let's go fly a kite!
-Burt 'Mary Poppins'

Haha...that song just makes me happy...maybe it's Dick Van Dyke's awful fake British accent in the movie Mary Poppins...but maybe it's just that the song makes me think SPRING!

Today was The Southern Standard's 11th annual Kite Day and it was the MOST PERFECT morning for flying kites! The sky was blue, the sun was shining and there was a nice breeze...add to that a whole bunch of kids and their kites and you have a great recipe for Kite Day!

I got to serve as a judge for the festivities today and it was so hard to pick favorites! But there were no losers today since everybody got the chance to enjoy the beautiful weather! Watch The Southern Standard in the days to come for details about the event.

I thought I'd share with you all some of the pictures I took this morning...Enjoy and I hope this inspires you to get out with your family this week and take in the spring!
