The last item on Ethan's Birthday Bucket List was kite flying.
I have never made a kite that actually flew for more than 10 seconds so we stuck to the tried and tested kite kits from our local toy store.
The only problem was the lack of wind... but we decided to give it a try anyway.
so it didn't work out,
onto Day 2:
That was a little better - the kite actually got off the ground that time!!!
Kite flying with Gran at the beach!
The kite actually stayed air-borne!
Whew! Who would have thought kite-flying to be such a mission.
I packed the kites away safely, ready to be pulled out on a blustery day.
Ethan's Birthday Bucket List all done.
This is one family tradition we definitely will be keeping.
