Kris’ Take: So the other day we decided to take a shot at flying a kite, it seemed windy enough. This wasn’t a regular kite, it is made out of this wire and fabric but the wire is foldable and flimsy; you can bend it with all of your strength and it just snaps back to shape. So when you take the kite out of it’s bag it just unfolds itself like one of those really cool camping tents.
So as we attempted to fly this kite we realized how hard this really was. I determined there was no problem with Laura and I, the problem lay with the kite and the wind. In Florida we have really gusty wind, not a constant wind. So the kite would start to get high up, then a gust of wind would come and bend the kite (because of the bendy frame) and it would fall down. It was tough, Laura and I tried everything, throwing it up in the air, running with it, asking it, yelling at it, and nothing worked.
It might seem like I didn’t enjoy the kite flying, but in all honestly, we still managed to have a good time. This is probably because we love spending time together, it doesn’t really matter what we’re doing. It would’ve been neat getting the kite to fly, but the weather is a bit out of our control. If you’re planning on trying to fly a kite, try to remember to check your local weather first.
Laura’s Take: I actually thought this one was kind of fun, well more like funny. It’s ok to look stupid when you’re trying to fly a kite, and boy did we succeed at that! lol. But honestly though, I would do it again. I felt like a little kid again!
