What a Weekend Should Be…

March 30, 2010

Let’s go fly a kite / Up to the highest height / Let’s go fly a kite / And send it soaring

There are weekends that seem so good that they couldn’t possibly have happened. They stick out in your memory, pristine and perfect. They are fun and magical and soaring and fantastic. All in all, they are fucking kickass.

This past weekend was one of those weekends.

It started with the Smithsonian Kite Festival on Saturday. It was a whole day of hysterical laughter, high-soaring and nose-diving kites, and picnicking on the Mall with awesome people. We got there good and early, and spent the entire day relaxing, eating and making semi-futile attempts to get our kites to stay in the air. It was a bit chilly, but nice and sunny, and just windy enough to be good for kites. Ended the day with Transformers and Dominos with one of my closest friends, Erica.

And on Sunday, my friend Bill came into town to hang out — he’s studying in England, so I hadn’t seen him in close to a year. We met up with our friend Courtney, and had one of those play-it-by-ear days. We attempted to get brick oven pizza for lunch, but the wait was too long, so we wandered over to another restaurant and got Mediterranean tapas. Over lunch, we randomly started talking about bowling, so we hit the nearby Lucky Strike and bowled two hilarious games. Then Bill and I wandered down to the Mall, attempted to ride the Carousel — sadly, we only had $3 between the two of us — then kept wandering until we found ourselves at the Fish Market, where we had some delicious shrimp and lemonade. An hour or so perusing books at Kramers rounded out my Sunday and my perfectly fantastic, epic weekend.

I’m still living off the high of how much fun I had this weekend. Have you had a glorious weekend lately?

This weekend was also the first time in a long time that I’ve broken out my big fancy camera, and really shot just for me. It made it even more blissfully fantastic. Here are some of my favorites:
