Let's Go Fly a Kite!

This afternoon we went to Stone Mountain with the intention of going up to the top so the girls could fly kites. These pictures make it look like our plan actually worked out:

Unfortunately, however, these few pictures show just about every minute the kites were actually in the air. Perhaps because it was so hot (about 95 degrees), and maybe because of the clouds (I don't know, I'm not a meteorologist), it was unusually warm at the top of the mountain, with very little breeze. Sporadically the wind would pick up and we could get the kites going, but mostly they just flopped around on the granite.

After half an hour or so we gave up and rode the skylift back down. We had a snack at the bottom, and then went to Northlake Mall to buy towels. Not quite what we'd intended when we set out from home this afternoon, but we had an okay time at the mall anyway.
