Go Fly a Kite

What better way to celebrate beautiful weather then to go kite flying?
I might have swollen eyes and itchy skin while I'm doing it, but damn the pollen, I want to go!

I might not be any good at it, but who cares?  Getting a kite in the face isn't the worst that can happen. (in case you're curious, killing a bird is the worst that can happen, or breaking your leg...)


Here are a couple of beautiful options to purchase if you're currently kite-less:

Maybe being outside isn't your thing or maybe you love flying kites so much you want to keep the idea with you...say in a locket?
When was the last time you flew a kite?  I can honestly say I don't remember the last time I ran around without abandon lugging a sweet kite behind me.  That needs to change and soon!

I haven't flown a kite since I was a lil girl, but I plan on going to beach alot this summer so I will definitely be picking up a kite somewhere!! Yeahh the allergies are getting me too. I'll have to take some meds but I will get to fly!

We've had cheesy looking kite in Scott's trunk for a couple years now but we are a little embarrassed of it, but last week we found an amazing OWL kite at Target!

Oh..."go fly a kite" (I mean it, litterally :)). Kite flying would be a great way to enjoy the weather, however, in the past when I have gone kite flying my kit seems to spend way more time on the ground than in the air :)

Macy's on State Street here is having their flower show right now, and the theme this year is "Let's Go Fly a Kite". This post made me think of that and smile. Ah, Spring;)
