That's the big kite - it looks small in this picture, but its longer than I am tall (and I'm 5'2''). Ray had planned on getting it up into the air and then I was going to take over, but he got it up there and it was pulling him ALL over the place.
Now, I also only weight 105 and we were pretty sure that if I lost my balance the kite might have actually picked my tiny ass up off the ground. And while I think flying would be cool, I wasn't up for that haha. So we decided that it was not a good idea for me to fly this kite. I was a little bummed, but Ray had a plan! We packed up and headed to Target to get me my very own kite.
Target had a very slim selection of kites, but I had my choice between Dora, Thomas the Train, and another cartoon that was not really going to make me happy. So I was trying to figure out which was the lesser of the evils when we spotted a kite shaped like a turtle. I grabbed that bad boy and ran! I was really glad that even though I was buying a kite made for children, that it didn't have to scream "kids kite" all over it haha.
You can't really see the kite WAY up there in the sky in this picture but it is there. Its that tiny little spec in the sky because its so far up there :)
I just think this is a cool photo - Steve took this, my awesome photographer :)
