The family and I have been taken advantage of every nice day that Spring has given us. Last weekend throngs of people flocked to the DC Tidal Basin to get a glimpse of the ever-popular Cherry Blossoms. It would be a lie to say, tourist because this is one of the things that the locals absolutely adore.
Every year the Cherry Blossom Kite Festival takes place down on the Mall. There are a series of events to celebrate the Cherry Blossom season, the Kite Festival is our favorite.
Kite flying isn’t my thing but taking pictures is so I play to my strength and don’t stray from my ministry. I am always on the hunt for the coolest kites.
I look for bold vibrant colors, creativity, and personality.
Babe and The Manchild take this kite flying business seriously, this is clearly their ministry. Apparently, your stance and technique counts because they are in the same position. Babe is in black and The Manchild is in gray, they are damn near the same size and height. I will harp on that in another post. Stay focused!
LittleCuteLips and Babe tag teamed on her kite this year. We lucked up on some fun kites from Costco for $15, they come in a nice storage box too. The temps were comfy, the sun was out and the windy was ready.
This shot doesn’t even begin to capture how packed it was out there.
This legit looked like a bird int he sky, but it’s just a dope kite.
More people among the beautiful Cherry Blossoms. It was like rush hour out here, there were so many people. Kites were getting tangled up. Kites were legit falling from the sky on to unsuspecting folks head. It was wild yet funny I can’t lie. I laughed at a few.
The ManChild got his kite up!
This komodo dragon kite was so damn DOPE! The colors, the realness, it looked so cool in the sky.
I saw this Rev., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. kite right before we declared we were leaving.
Above all else it is a great family day for us. Earlier this morning she had a Soccer Game, we grabbed grub and hit downtown. After hours of fun we went more grub and hit the outlets. I’m so thankful that we genuinely enjoy one anothers company most of the time. I’m not going to fake for yall.
