A Happy Mother’s Day

IMG_1401

What better way to spend Mother’s Day than to sit on a sunny beach and fly kites.  After getting a Mother’s Day message from my daughter and grandkids, we gathered up kites, lines and anchors and headed for the beach.  This day I had in mind a color and style theme.  So I grabbed my Power Sleds and matching line laundry.  All of them in my favorite combination of red, white, black and gray.

I was lucky enough to get the my set of Power Sleds in matching colors before the pattern was discontinued by Premier Kites.  I believe there are two more sizes of Power Sleds, one smaller, the Power Sled 10, and one even bigger, the Power Sled 81. I never saw the Power Sled 10 in my colors and the Power Sled 81 is larger than I feel I can safely handle.  My smallest is the Power Sled 14,  then there is the Power Sled 24 and the Power Sled 36.  They are still available in a variety of colors and patterns.

I have several line laundry in the same colors but the wind wasn’t strong enough to give enough lift to hang everything on the kite line.  However, I did put out my Spikey Bird.  I like to put sand in his feet to hold them on the ground so it seems like he is actually standing below the kite.

After everything was flying well, we sat and watched the waves and enjoyed the sun until it began to go down and the temperature became a little chilly.  I had my Mother’s Day dinner in the crockpot when we left the house so I knew it would be ready when we got home.  It was a peaceful, restful Mother’s Day, though I did miss not being able to see my family in person.  The time will come when we can all be together again.

Until then…
