Window of Sunshine

Its been raining and the wind is blowing hard in here lately. Since my son started his vacation from school we have been at home trying to work out on how we could go out.
We are having cabin fever already and we are going bonkers inside! I need a plan! I need to make our summer less boring.
I thought of the moments when there's sun, minutes in a day where everything will be nice.
And we are lucky enough to be able to go to the beach to enjoy a small window of sunshine on rainy day.

So even if summer if giving us rains and heavy winds we try to make it less boring by working with nature and what it gives us!
This time its wind so what better way to enjoy a windy day than kites!

We were gifted with kites and that is what my husband and son brought to play with on the beach.
I cant believe how perfect that moment is! The wind stopped from being strong to just right for a kite hour.

And my son flew his first kite for the first time.

And he did good. There are times when he would get blown away but he manage the kite like a pro!

So proud of him and I am so glad that though its raining non stop we have these minutes that we can enjoy the outside without being miserable!

And while we are heading home from this walk the rain started falling and the wind started blowing hard again.

Enjoying the summer doesnt need a lot of things! Just kites for us.

How wonderful, he did do well. I keep meaning to buy one for Monkey. Daddy P has one, but it's way too big and complicated for a youngster to manage. Well done :)

Lovely pics- it definitely makes me want to get a kite although it's definitely too windy where we are today!

I'm now singing let's go fly a kite in my head after seeing your photos. The weather has been miserable here too, with only one good day all week #countrykids

Wow Sebastian is doing a great job with flying that kite and what beautiful photos. I do envy you living near the beach and being able to do things like this - my hubby loves kite flying but it is hard sometimes trying to find somewhere to do it where there is enough space.

I can't remember the last time I flew a kite. What a great way to make the most of a windy day.

I'd love to live near a beach so my little one could fly a kite - lovely childhood memories #twinklytuesday

I hadn't even thought about a kite, great idea. Next windy day you will find me on our local common singing lets go fly a kite like a possessed Mary Poppins. Love it.

That's just brilliant, how good is your boy at flying the kite! As I always say you are so lucky to live near the sea! Thanks for sharing on #MondayEscapes

well dne on grabbing the opportunity. I never mastered kite flying with my children. It is great to live near a beach, and I love a beach even on a cold windy day. Well done on keeping the kite up.

What a great way to make the most of a windy day. We recently had some flooding, and my daughters' observation was, "but our kite flying area is underwater!" We only go kite flying a few times a year, but clearly, those are important memories. Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.
