Let’s Go “Fly” A Kite!

Earth Day was Sunday. And it needed to be celebrated properly.

And everyone knows a proper Earth Day celebration involves kite flying.

We tried. We really tried.

The lizard kite is kind of in the air. A little bit. (Look closely.)

But, most of the time, the lizard kite flew at an altitude lower than people-height.

There was running involved. But very little flying.

My next kite will be a butterfly. Or a bird. Or a UFO.

Lizards are ground-dwelling creatures. But perhaps a lizard will fly when it has a UFO buddy. Perhaps.

After walking the lizard kite, we walked Laika. (Well, John walked Laika. I just walked myself.)

Laika was invited to our Earth Day picnic. She has lovely table manners.

We attempted to create a balanced Earth Day meal — a Bandit Burrito with a spinach tortilla (green! like parts of the Earth!) and a brownie (brown! like the soil). It tasted delightfully earthy.

    Aww…well, you tried! Hooray for kite “flying”! (Also, I am now singing “let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height.”)

    Maybe if we hold the lizard kite out the window of the car…?
