Kites over Austin

March is transitionally one of the busiest months in Austin.

It seems like EVERYTHING is happening this month — South by Southwest, Rodeo Austin and the Zilker Kite Festival, just to name a few.

Andy and I are going to SXSW Interactive this year, which means next weekend will be especially busy, so we decided to pack of the kids today and take them down to the kite festival.

It was a gorgeous day, but the wind didn’t seem to be helping people keep up their kites.  There appeared to be more people than kites this year.  And it’s true that we did not bring our kite, but we still had a great time.  I mean, how can you not have fun when there are kites, cupcakes and fun houses?

If we had really wanted to, there were kite-making crafts in one of the tents or we could have bought a kite from one of the vendors.

For us, it was all about the sunshine.
