Kite Flying at Mt. Tabor Park

Yesterday was pure R&R with the family. It was a beautiful, blustery autumn day, excellent conditions for kite flying at Mount Tabor Park located in Dallas, GA.

There she is, my crayon kite. Look at those strikingly bright colors! Crayolas were my first art medium as a child. Still use them to this day. Now they come in neon and metallic colors. Yee-ha!

It's not often we have blustery, Winnie-the-Pooh, days here in GA--makes me think of my Windy City home.

Hum for a Blustery Day

Hum dum dum ditty dum
Hum dum dum

Oh the wind is lashing lustily
And the trees are thrashing thrustily
And the leaves are rustling gustily
So it's rather safe to say
That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubtedly
It looks like a rather blustery day, today
It sounds that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubtedly
Looks like a rather blustery day today

Here's my loyal companion, Lucy, and me flying the kite together. Check out the magnificent colorful foliage in the background.

Lucy with Daddy. Who's walking who? Ha!

At the end of our park time, Steve feeds Lucy an apple.

Family day was wonderful. We spent it at the park and driving down Burnt Hickory Road to look at additional fall foliage. We made a pitstop along the way to Bruster's Real Ice Cream. Lucy loves their doggie sundeas. Yum-O!
