After 20 some odd years in Austin, I finally got to experience the Kite Festival. I never went as a child, and my first couple years back in Austin I worked jobs that had me work on Sundays.
But not this year!
It was the perfect day for it - clear skies, warm but not too hot, and a wind around 8-10mph. Perfect.
Husband and I rode our bikes and stopped at Juiceland on the way for breakfast smoothies.

I was originally going just to sit in the park and watch, but we met up with some friends who had brought several kites with them.
It was so much fun to just enjoy the outdoors and see people spend time together. Most of the little kids enjoyed climbing the big rocks at Zilker rather than kite flying, especially my friends' little boy who kept asking husband to climb the rocks with him.
