Go Fly a Kite


When was the last time you flew a kite? I can't recall the last time I did. Before yesterday it must have been more than a decade. Kite flying is perhaps the ultimate pointless leisure activity, one geared toward pure and simple enjoyment. Yesterday we used our daughter as an excuse to get out there and fly a kite.

I can assure you those power lines were farther away than they appear to be, across the street even.

When kite flying concluded we followed up with some good old fashioned park time.

It was an absolutely beautiful, gorgeous, day

Running up and down the hill concluded the activities at the park.

We went home and enjoyed some delicious homemade pizza.

We love to fly kites...we used to do it a lot more often on the windy plains of ND...here in the mountains and trees it may be a little bit mroe difficult...

Have a lovely day!

PS...I love the new sunglasses!

We haven't flown a kite in a long time! Fun fact: on our first date we were supposed to go to the lake and fly a kite. But when we stopped by the store to purchase one, they were completely out. So we went to the lake and just talked instead. We followed it up with dinner and the rest is history! :)

She looks darling! So do you, for that matter. Our son adores kite flying. He's not quite convinced that one cannot fly kites in the dead of winter during snowstorms, in fact. Story for another time...
