I can’t remember ever flying a kite before. I don’t know why that wasn’t something we did as kids, but we didn’t. So last year I had a brilliant idea; buy Adrienne a kite for her birthday and we would *have* to go fly it! So here we are 11 months later and the kite hasn’t been out of the box. Until today.
Today we met Leslie and Lona for a picnic and kite-flying at Zuanich Park. Leslie is clever and does all sorts of cool handy things at her house so I knew she could help me figure out how to put it together and get that thing up in the sky. What I didn’t know is that they have a kite that they’ve been flying for 19 years! She was a pro.
It was a perfect day with the wind blowing in off the water.
We ate lunch.
And made a new friend.
Lona and Leslie
And flew kites.
With a smile on my face I’m crossing off an item on my bucket list. (Well, 2 actually. When you’re only 7 yrs old in a 49 yr old body, you’re bucket list is full of things like “fly a kite” and “eat lunch with a seagull”.) And Adrienne was beaming. We both had a fantastic time.
Own the Day!
