after a delightful lunch and a wonderful visit with longtime friends at pecking order, lou suggested botanic garden for summer colors and scents and of course, the kite festival. we came very late. but luck was with us. we were able to see and enjoy the last demonstration of sport kite ballet set on music by the chicago fire kite team. shortly thereafter was the most fun part. it was the spectators’ turn to fly their own kites.
there was a mad dash into the open grounds and a display of colorful and interesting kites ready to launch. hubby and grandson were so excited and for the first time, our precious one ran around flying his own kite. it was surreal for our little big guy. his kite soared up high and he had a great time.
