It was a beautiful sunny day and extremely windy, but perfect for kite flying. It was San Juan’s 7th Annual Kite Flying Festival, so the whole place was packed with families flying all kinds of decorative kites. Everyone was happy, smiling, and excited. I’ve never seen so many kites so high in the sky. We decided to have a picnic in the grass and watch the kites. It was fun to watch those who had no control over their kite, waiting for one to come crashing down. Being there brought me back to Easter when I was a child. My siblings and I would get kites and fly them out in the field next to our house. I loved it and haven’t done it in years. If the wind is right this year I just might have to buy a kite. How about you?
