Last year, Olivia and I tried about 30 times to go out across the street and fly a kite, but the wind was never consistent enough to get it in the air, let alone keep it there. Eventually, winter rolled around and we gave up. Last weekend, though, was beautiful and windy, so we tried again and this time were very successful! The wind was blowing hard and kept the kite high in the air. Olivia had a great time doing it, even though we got caught in the trees twice.
We Also got out a "Boomer-ring" that we got at the circus. it was supposed to fly out and come back, but with the wind, it never quite did that. Olivia got quite good at chasing it down and throwing it at me, though. :)
