Forget about Biltema…we ended up at Toys “R” Us on Sunday morning (courtesy of Dr. Darling‘s Dad’s car) and came home with not one, but TWO more kites. We bought a smaller stunt kite (which we named Discovery II) and a small parafoil because it was 50% off.
Worse yet, we’ve been out flying them EVERY DAY since. Could we be any more geeky? Dr. Darling is a scientist, so at least she has an excuse. I just seem to be getting nerdier by the day for no reason. Surely it’s her influence, right?
Today was especially nice, because after a long and chaotic first day back at work, she picked me up at the train station (I LOVE car-sitting for her Dad) and we drove directly to Riborsborg, do not pass go, do not collect $200, and flew the kites for about an hour. The sky and the sea were bright blue and the wind was perfect. It was such a great way to unwind from the workday…I don’t care how nerdy it sounds!
