Kite Flying

7.03.2010

Over the last few weeks, Jesse has picked up a new hobby:
Kite surfing!
If you're not familiar with it, you use a giant kite to pull you along on a board similar to a wakeboard.
  Jesse's kite is 11 meters long.

We saw someone doing it on the beach in NC several years ago and he's wanted to do it since then, but just never did. There's a few other guys here with  kites so Jesse decided to join in. He's only had his kite for about a week but he's learning pretty quickly. He's already hooked and we spend A LOT of time at the beach.
I have to admit, my beach adventures aren't quite as...well, adventurous. I spend a majority of my beach time soaking up the sun and reading. I have two favorite series that I'm hooked on right now.
The first is the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. It's the series that the HBO show True Blood is based on. I admit it's completely mindless and silly reading but I LOVE it!

The second is the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I'm embarrassed to admit that it's a series aimed at young adults... I know I'm not technically a young adult any more... but I still love these books. They're perfect beach reading!

If you are looking for something fun and easy to read, I highly recommend these two series, especially if you're a Twilight fan.

I hope everyone is doing well. We miss everyone so much- especially this weekend. We would love to be at the lakehouse with the family right now or hitting up Emerald Isle for the annual fireworks show. Although we're not in the States, we will definitely be celebrating Independence Day and remembering how lucky we are to be citizens of such an amazing country.
Happy 4th of July!
With Love,
The Lynchs
