Winter Kite Festival at Lake Harriet, Jan 12, 2008

How a big kite takes to the air:

The German word for kite is "dragon" and we can see why.

But there's lots more going on: Toasting marshmallows around the fire.

A little picnic can't be missing, after all the sun is shining!
Ice-fishing of course -we are on a lake for Pete's sake! And you gotta start them young.
Patience in pink.
Now there's an interesting technique from a young hopeful.

Snow leopards sledding.

A n d back to kites!

Are they not an epitome of fun and carefree childhood?
