Kite Flying

A couple of weeks ago, it was hot, and we asked Vin wanted to do. Fresh off the Santa Cruz vacation he declared "I want to go to the beach!"

At the same time, I was thinking that it's a shame we don't have a kite. Steven encouraged me to make one, but having never done it before, and with several projects already piled up in my office, I decided to approach this differently.

Which is the say...I threw money at the problem.

Low and behold, there is a kite store in Half Moon Bay. Beach AND we get to buy a kite?! Perfect! It wasn't windy enough to fly it that day, but today, I helped Steven launch our newly purchased kite into the sky.

We got it high enough in the sky to seriously be concerned about it crashing into a neighbors house, or getting stuck in a 3 story tree, but despite extremely rusty kite flying skills we avoided all of that, and we eventually landed it gently on the edge of the roof.

Vin was more interested in digging around the gravel and getting filthy than flying kites. For that matter, so was Shelby. It was so hot, she actually found a mound of dirt in the shade on which to rest.
