It was overgrown with trees and brush, but it has been cleaned up recently. There is still some trash down below because filthy, ignorant a$$hole people think it is "okay" to dump their trash. IT IS NOT OKAY!
Okay, on to the Kite Festival. To say it was windy yesterday would be an understatement. It was w-i-n-d-y. The Bean had a big airplane kite that he had difficulty getting airborne because it was just too darn windy. I finally convinced him to try a different kite from our stash.
I had bought this cool Dragon kite at a yard sale last Summer. It had a ridiculous price of thirtysomething dollars on it from some Kite Shop in San Fransisco. That kite went straight up and stayed up perfectly for about an hour.
The Bean was happy. Very happy indeed. And then it happened. *Sigh* The wind sucked that kite right off the string and it sailed off into the horizon never to be seen again. The wind was blowing West, so if anyone in Oklahoma finds a big Dragon kite......
Luckily, we had a lot of other kits in our bag. Not this one however - isn't it funny? A lady air surfing. It cracked me up.
There were a lot of funny kites - a spaceship, a frog, a helicopter, the lady, a fish, an octopus - I'd never seen so many fancy funny kites. I think we were the only ones to have lost ours though.
And, The Bean finally got that Airplane kite up in the air.
(I am so proud that I actually took video and got it posted that I won't even worry about the fact that it is sideways. Turn your monitor on it's side and enjoy! And try not to notice how unbelievably SOUTHERN I sound. I swear, I don't. Much. I didn't even know there was sound on my digital camera.....I would have kept my piehole shut.)
