Kite Flying-Started out fun and ended in disaster!

Avery got a kite in one of her Easter baskets last weekend and today was the 1st day we were able to fly it. She has been soooooooo excited about playing with this kite. So, she woke up from her nap and we went out our back gate and flew it for the 1st time. I did it first to show how to hold it and to show her how high it would go. She thought this was the coolest thing she has ever seen. It is just so cute how kids get soo excited over the smallest things. After, the kite fell to the ground, she wanted to hold the end and she wanted to fly it. I got her started and got it in the air and she did soo good with it. She thought she was such a big girl for holding her own kite. She was able to do this a couple of times and then it went down hill from there!!! I got it started for her once again, handed the kite to her and she was loving it, I grabbed my camera to video her , the wind picked up and she let go of the handle! The kite flew away and was going faster than I could run and got caught in the trees and we lost it! She wanted it back soo bad, so we have to go and buy her another one tomorrow :( It flew forever in the sky, above the whole park with the string caught in the trees. Here are some pics...
