26 before 30

 Happy to report:  On our 'babymoon' I was able to cross off another item from the list...

11. Fly a kite

Some might say it's crazy that I have no childhood memories of trying to get a kite in the air (which is not as easy as it looks...) and then sending it up, up, and away. But alas, I can assure you I do not.  Perhaps it's because we never did it or perhaps just because I have not seen it on one of our home movies to jog my memory.  Either way, I wanted to fly a kite.  SUCCESSFULLY.  

On our trip to Oregon/Washington State, we decided it would be a perfect time to try.  We made our way to some tiny little grocery store and proceeded to argue discuss which type of kite was better.  My husband, who is a very wise man, told me we needed to spend the extra few dollars for a fancy better kite so we would have an easier time getting, and keeping, it in the air.  Did I say BL was wise?  He was very much right about this (either that or I am a seriously good kite flier), and we had a blast flying that thing on the beach!  What a fun memory to share with such a special man.  Can't wait to take our little one out to fly a {fancy} kite too! 


getting started!

not sure if you can tell....but....
that sucker was really high up there!   
SUCCESS!!
