There's Something About a Kite!
What is it about a kite that sets the child in us free? Last Saturday was Chicago's annual Kite Festival. We've attended the last three years and each year it gets better. Bring your kite, buy a kite there or make one there for free, you have no excuse not to take flight.
The professional kite fliers (how do you get a job like that?) were out with magnificent specimens, a squid that was the size of a bus, a cat the size of an elephant and a sea horse that swam in the wind, incredible. The weather cooperated. We had sun, clouds and wind, but no rain!
Two adults, two children, four kites, hm-m-m, we could have used two more adults. Our usual cohorts were working but we managed and had a fabulous time. All that fresh air knocked me out!
