Kites and the Fairlane

We own a 1967 Ford Fairlane. By we, I mean Rick.

Rick's pride and joy which, unless you went to highschool with Rick, you've probably never seen because he can't drive it when it's too cold, or too hot, or if there are too many bugs, or if it's too humid, or if there's rain in the forecast, or if the wind might come from the NE at 6 mph, etc, etc. :) you get the idea. The weather has to be perfect.

Rick loves that car more than anything. There is actually a not so funny story about it breaking down years and years ago when we were dating, and I had to push it while he steered because he didn't trust me to steer. Ask me about it sometime. I was 15, he was 19.

You can imagine my surprise on Saturday, when he broke the Fairlane out and we were able to spend 2 days cruising around before it got put back away.

The kids love riding in it.

We were also able to get some kite flying in this weekend.

All in All, a VERY good weekend to start a VERY hectic week coming up.
