come fly with me~

My dad used to bring us kite flying when we were young! I can still remember those cherished, carefree times and the simple joy, laughter and spontaneity of kite flying. Dad with cigarette dangling in his mouth, would patiently demonstrate to us the techiques of flying a kite. Us kids would then be racing with each other gleefully as the winds lifted our kites into the sky with dad looking on proudly..

I love what my sis wrote here. Brought back tons of sweet (and some parts bitter) memories of my childhood. As what she'd said, we were indeed fortunate and blessed..

I want Aidan to have have such wonderful memories of his childhood too..:)

Just some pics taken during Renee's 3 year old birthday on Sunday :)

he's much more smiley now :)

me dunno how to fly kite! my dad tried to teach but somehow never got the chance to.

:P your photos are so so good looking. and yes, aidan is really more smiley now
Feb. 22nd, 2006 03:06 pm (UTC)
do try it. it's actually quite fun especially the sense of achievement when the fly soars into the sky :)
Feb. 22nd, 2006 03:34 pm (UTC)
Man, it's been ages since I flew a kite ... erm, not counting those times gf asked me to "Go fly a kite!" after I ji seow her. LOL! Wah, your 2 guys look like they're having loads of fun ... kinda makes me wonder what it'll be like when I have a kid of my own. There are so many activities I can picture us doing together ... and it gives me the license to re-live my childhood too. Best! ;)

I'm sure u're creating wonderful memories for aidan!

looks so fun....must ask DH to bring us kite flying one day...is this at Marina South?

i see aidan wearing crocs...is it comfortable? very tempted to get a pair for nana but scared she outgrow it very quickly.
Feb. 23rd, 2006 10:22 am (UTC)
we did it at west coast park :)

i tried out the crocs myself to ascertain whether it's comfy..and was pleasantly surprised that it was! aidan loved it and now insist on wearing it every time! but it's a li' on the expensive side though..his pair cost abt $40++ after discount. i guess it depends whether nana's feet grows very fast...aidan's doesnt! he has small feet and wears size 8/9.

Happy Belated Birthday wishes to Renee!

Aiyoh, he's so cute in the last photo. :) Yes, it's nice to see him more smiley now.

Aidan is so handsome and such a happy boy!! so guilty, kite flying and bike riding are what we have been wanting to do with the boy for a long long time!! hehe...
Feb. 23rd, 2006 10:11 am (UTC)
eh thought u'd brought gabe biking before..or did i confuse u with someone else? but you've exposed gabe to so many other activities so he's not losing out much either :)
Feb. 23rd, 2006 05:09 am (UTC)
You guys are such wonderful parents, bothered to bring Aidan for kite-flying, we're the lazy ones, just talk no action.
Aidan is indeed a more smilling boy now...
Feb. 23rd, 2006 10:25 am (UTC)
but you've brought caleb to many fun places too..for eg, i havent brought aidan to science centre and the firestation yet even though i'd said i wanted to do so..

Eh your Kite flying was better than ours! We attempted once and it was terrible because it started drizzling... Poor boys got so disappointed and we have yet to try again. Hmm, guess we should do it soon.
Feb. 23rd, 2006 10:24 am (UTC)
initially it wasnt that great coz there wasnt any wind but after a while, the skies took pity on us and granted us some wind so it became more fun :)
since u guys have the kite, can always try it again. the east has more 'wind' i feel hehe..
