Aashini's Kite Day!

Yesterday was Kite Day (to read more about that make sure you check out the other blog - http://www.southasiarocks.blogspot.com/)...
We went to M-town for the first time after being back in South Asia and had a lot of fun! Here's Jaya with Aashini (look at Aashini's crazy hair!).
She really does have some hair (you can see it in this picture below! - really!!)... Aashini got a lot of attention and had a lot of fun :) I don't know how many Mobile Phones (Cell Phones :)) have Aashini's picture on them, but there are a ton!
Aashini loved playing with the kites and the kite accessories ;)
The rolls of string were her favorites!
Here she is on the ladder - she thought it was so much fun! She even climbed up on it by herself! (don't worry, we were right next to her! Really, I'm safety conscious - see the post below!)
She thought it was awesome ;)
We had a few broken kites here and there, and Aashini loved to play with them! This one was her favorite and she just kept running around with it!
She also got to play with chalk for the first time :) (that's her name written in Hindi in chalk if you're wondering) :)
It was a very fun and eventful day for her :) She was sooo exhausted by the end of the day, it was a hard trip for her! She wouldn't really take any naps because she was so excited all day :) It was cute!

Hey! I read about Kite Day in the novel The Kite Runner. The books is set in a Middle Eastern country, but it sounds pretty similar where you are with the glass strings and stuff.
