Naked Man And His Kite


My husband loves to take the kids to the park and fly kites with them.

Isn't it nice that we all have different interests because I would probably never do this with them.

It is just not my thing.

I do lots of things with them that Kelly wouldn't consider also.

It was a beautiful day.

The wind was just right.

And my husband had to take his shirt off.


The man is from California and he will try to get a tan under ANY circumstances.

Hiking….shirt off.

Bike ride….shirt off.

Mowing the lawn…shirt off.

Kite flying….you guessed it!


I have tried to encourage sunscreen but when was the last time you actually got any of YOUR husbands to wear sunscreen?

Besides the nakedness at the park…it was an awesome day:-)

    Yes, we all have our things, like I take the kids thrifting, but husband would never set foot in a thrift store. But there you are, all together, having a nice day, Jeanne

    what a fun post Jeanne…it reminded me of the time my sister and i tried to fly kites with my son when he was little…there was not a good breeze that day…and our kite was bumping along on the ground as we furiously ran across my three acres here…we were rolling on the ground laughing our butts off…my poor little guy was not amused

    Hi Jeanne πŸ™‚
    Being from California originally I know what you mean LOL Here in Ohio I had to get used to being weird because I’m barefoot all the time. They like their shoes on in the mid-west πŸ˜‰
    Looks like a great day!

    I love the hair…it’s perfect !!! The Accountant is rarely without a shirt because of the fact his irish skin is alabaster white πŸ™‚
    Looks like a great day.

    looks like you had a great weekend too! Neal wanted to take his shirt off but I wouldn’t let him. πŸ™‚ Now he’s complaining about his farmer tan… He just said he’s shirt off person now… THanks a lot…

    LOL…about your husband. Mine leaves his shirt on 100% of the time. He might get mistaken for a gorilla! giggle giggle. Your children are darling and what a lovely day outdoors!

    We live in Sunny CA… however, my Hubby only frerckles see he is IRISH and does not tan and needs 50 suncreen and wears it πŸ™‚ happily. I love that he takes the kids to fly kites, we have a big one from Costco that we fly.
    On another note….I love your new and old bed linens they are FABULOUS!!!

    i frequently tell my big guy that he should mow the lawn shirtless, he looks at me funny. he is a buttondown tucked-in pleated pressed khakis kinda guy.
    love that hysterical last picture

    so fun! I’m so not the kite-flying mom, either – LOVE that your husband is!!
    Looked like a beautiful day!
    HUGS & Happy Monday!

    That looks like a perfect day.
    Thank you for sharing your sweet pictures.
    My husband (from New York) likes to take off his shirt also.
    He actually got in trouble for doing it on our honeymoon in Venice. It’s not allowed there. Just in case you visit, now you know.
    Have a super week

    Great Photos! Wasn’t it a beautiful weekend in CO! I’m laughing at your hair in your last pic and man girl you have some arches. Were you a dancer in another life? If not you should have been.
    Enjoying your posts as always and thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hi!
