great festival, great time with everyone.
Saturday was a slow and chilly start. Winds did finally pick up in the afternoon and we had a great time flying. We got RevChris and Jynx in the mix and it was just fun..
Elie and Maggi ended up kicking Mike Stephensons butt late in the day and all I can say is that Mike was very lucky as Elie ate so much candy throughout the day that she barfed 5 times when she got home. I can attest to the fact that barf does NOT ruin the 180Go! shirts as Elie painted one up very nicely.
Needless to say, I was in the crapper with Jenny for letting Elie eat so much crap. But even in the midst of her filling a bucket, she was still asking to go again the next day...lol
Sunday was basically a no wind day... We did some low (no) wind flying and actually pulled it off pretty well while in 4 man groups. We also FINALLY got some group photos of the entire team.
And I spent an hour looking for Elie as she decided that she wanted to 'do her own thing' as she told me when she finally showed back up at the Chicago Kite Tent. There is nothing like having your wife pissed at you for letting your kid gorge herself on candy only to lose her the next day and consider what mad REALLY might be. It was almost my turn to puke...lol
Anyway, it was all fun and next fest, Elie will be dogstaked to the field...lol... or else will be wearing a kid tracker... lol...
Many thanks to the Naperville Park District, Dave at Chicago Kite and especially Jennifer for letting Elie tag along with Her, James and Maggie...
