Go Fly a Kite!

So the boys got two kites as presents from Lori's boss (partnered with a gift for Rebecca).  On a very windy Saturday, Bob (father-in-law) and I took the boys out to the park to test drive the kites.  Josh was a natural at kite flying and really took control of his kite.  Alex was a little aprehensive and just sort of ran around on the field.  I ended up flying his kite for the most part and believe it or not, I had a great time.  I haven't flown a kite in years and it was slightly relaxing.  Josh and I tried to not cross the strings while keeping both kites aloft.  We had a few tangles and ensuing crashes but overall it was a successful adventure.  

We had to pack it in once a vicious storm rolled in but we had enough flight time under our belts for one day.   Before the kite action I went out to Top Golf as Doe treated me to lunch and drinks for my birthday.  I really found my swing towards the end and set a record score in Top Golf (using Doe's chip-encoded balls unfortunately).  I'm thinking of getting back into the weekly Top Golf league in June.  Now it's off to dinner and perhaps some drinks and cigars with Bob out on the back deck.

Kite flying can be fun but I could never really do it successfully. I’m glad you took the kids out and had fun flying kites.
