We made our first trip to the beach this weekend. We went far too early in the day, so I had to constantly slather the fishies with sunscreen. Redfish looks like he can burn in approximately 3.2 seconds, so he was covered most of the time. We let him out for just a minute to sit in the sand (read, shove it in his mouth) and feel the water.
The Scientist and I wanted to (learn to) fly kites so we made a WallyWorld trip first. What the heck ever happened to the plain ol' diamond shaped kite? There were dragons and cartoon characters and fairies and animals and flowers. No plain primary colored diamond kites. And certainly no black and gold ones. And I'll just say that the directions for how to put these flying cartoon characters together were obviously written by someone who does not claim English as their first language. Or perhaps their second, for that matter. The flying dragon never did take to the skies. Impossible. We did manage to tame the shark kite into its full construction and then flying, although it had an annoying habit of divebombing the ocean when the winds changed.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Please try to ignore the bra straps hanging out of my shirt. Can we speak for just a moment on how hard Blogger makes it to work with pictures?
