Let's go fly a kite!t

Firstly, let me start by saying that Mary Poppins is by far the best Disney musical of all time. Well, at least it's my personal favourite. Mr Bank's singing 'Let's go fly a kite' is heart-warming end to the film & incredibly cute, so cute in fact, that this weekend my friend Laura & I took off to the park and did just that.

Sunday afternoon delivered nothing less that superb Gold Coast weather & a healthy ocean breeze. There was nothing more fitting to do than have a small BBQ and take Laura's new kite for a test run. Our GF feast of sausages & bread was very tasty indeed, even though our BBQ prowess was lacking. Afterwards though, kite launching exploits began, which involved a remarkable amount of running.
Once we had worked out our tactic & after extending the string a few times, Laura & I managed to get the kite stuck in the upper branches of the tallest tree in the park... It did survive but we'll be keeping a tighter leash on it next time around!

Lovely Laura preparing our feast
The kite is launched
Yours truly playing it safe but having far too much fun
Gentlemen friends taking over kite duties with a much longer string!
Much fun was had by all - and Mr Squid, the worlds greatest kite, will most definitely be making another skyward appearance on Australia Day.

If you don't know the song I refer to above, please do yourself a huge favour & watch the scene now :)
