They haven't been too successful getting them up in the air in our yard.

We took the kites to the beach today, though, and wowie, we had no problem getting them up there. With the constant wind, all we had to do was unwind them a bit to get them in the air. Maeve and Kieran were thrilled. They are also in a horribly competetive phase, so it was a constant battle to see whose would go higher.
