Raul had been to the Austin Kite Festival back in 2004 and never really went again...just couldn't get it into our schedule. Well, Joshua LOVES kites and we decided to go this year and we will probably go every year from now on. It's only one day so if you miss it, you have to wait another year to go. Luckily, we have 5.6 acres to fly a kite on, which I am sure we will be doing here really soon. Joshua does want an octopus kite badly, but we had our Blue Macaw and his froggie kite from the coast to fly this year.
