Let's Go Fly A Kite

I woke up a few days ago with this song in my head about flying a kite. You know, the one from Mary Poppins, "let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height"...blah blah blah?

In fact, I think I had been dreaming about flying a kite. So, I made Ryan take me to buy one.

I hadn't even thought about, let alone actually attempted to fly a kite in literally a couple decades. So, we bought a couple and took them over to the auction house in West Middleton where we would have plenty of room. All I can say is OMG!!!!! I totally forgot how much running is involved in getting a kite off the ground. I thought my heart would explode right there. Unfortunately, it wasn't very windy that day, so it took a lot of effort to get them going. I had a good run of about three minutes. I think that was the longest either one of us kept one going. But, it was a whole lot of fun.

I'm excited for the next nice day we have so I can attempt it again.

It might sound a little silly, but Ryan and I had so much fun that day. It really did remind me of being a kid again.

So, if any of you are ever bored, and looking for some cheap entertainment, Ryan and I are always up for flying a kite, so come on over!!!
