Kite Fest

Last Sunday we decided to do something a little different. Apparently the Kite Fest has been taking place for the last few years not far from home so this year we decided to go. Nounou is a little obsessed with flying objects; planes, birds etc. so we figured he would enjoy kites.  It was a little cold and windy on the beach and honestly, we’re not sure if he even noticed the kites he was so enthralled with all the people and surrounding noise!

We were expecting more professional kites / kite fliers but the vast majority of them were held by children and their parents. There were stalls playing music, serving food, face painting and kite making. It was filled with families pretending it felt like summer -it was actually pretty cold, but there was a lovely atmosphere.

I’m always thinking now of different things to explore through the eyes of a little boy… I find myself constantly thinking what he might learn from, or what he might really enjoy… this was something different, full of colour, music and people in a new place. It was the perfect time spent on a Sunday morning.

Noah Alexander’s Christening.

It was finally time for our Noah Bear to be Christened.  I half expected him to shout at the Priest for pouring ‘water’ over him but he was the perfect gentleman. He sat on our knees throughout the ceremony, with just a few shouts and giggles, but thankfully no tears…or unusual smells. The Priest was really nice, funny and helped put all the mums and dads minds at ease. I was a little put off though as he continuously referred to Noah as Nora. It must have been the bonnet.

His gown came from Mexico and I just loved it – I couldn’t take enough pictures.

Here are some of the many photos from the day…
