Such a glorious day in Chicagoland today! Wes and I decided to go to see the lovely flowers at the Botanic Garden and noticed the Kite Festival sign as we entered the garden. (Did you ever read the book THE KITE RUNNER? If so, you might remember the difficulty of flying these colorful kites, and I was thrilled to be able to witness something I had only read about before firsthand.)
What a lovely sight to see these masters-of-the-craft of kite flying! They flew their kites in teams. Music accompanied their choreographed actions. It was simply beautiful.
Three kites like airborne angelfish.
How could we not purchase a kite and go fly it with our little Miss E today? Answer: We couldn't! Our kite is the pink one right on top the dragon wings kite...Wes is flying it.
Wes practiced on the field with the others following the kite performance.
Then into the car we tumbled, kite in hand, to find Ellie waiting with her Mom right in front of their home.
