Oops... I mean Happy 2012!
And seriously... go fly a kite!
I can't believe it is going into my 8th year of full-time prairie living and it has taken me this long to figure out something fun to do in the horrible, god-for-saken, never ending wind!
Kite flying is fun! Who knew?!
Or wait maybe all you flatlanders did know... you just never realized your hillbilly friend didn't.
Because kite flying in my childhood involved a lot more running... mostly running and very little actual flying. And if your kite did actually make it into the air you never really got to watch it swoop and dance because you were running your ass off trying to keep it up there!
Kite flying in the prairies is WAY better then kite flying in the mountains!
I had so much fun I am thinking of taking up kite boarding. So someone reading this blog should buy me a trainer kite for kite boarding. I know this someone I am talking about is probably thinking... seriously like you need another activity. But think about it... this is something I could just walk out my front door and do. Think how much easier this would make life for you... if I was entertained by something so close to home! ;)
Oh yeah and I think Shayla had fun too!
When Clayton came home for lunch it was the first thing she said to him. And then we had to go out and show him...
Did you see that... did ya? did ya? The kite just hits the ground and then the wind picks it right back up and off it goes swooping and diving again. Craziest, easiest, most fun I have ever had flying a kite!!!
