Go Fly a Kite

Hikaru was looking forward to his usual walk to the park this afternoon, but he said, "No swing." His usual first destination is the swing, but he would much rather see the kite fly. There was a change in the weather today, so there was wind.

Our kite looks like a butterfly. Kites made out of silk were flown as early as 2800 years ago in China, but this "modern" one is made out of nylon. There was some anticipation while the kite string was being reeled out by Daddy...

And with Mommy holding the kite ready to launch... a slight tug of the string sent the kite flying high into the sky with the wind!

Hikaru was pretty excited -- running back and forth -- squealing with joy!
