Berkeley Kite Festival and Sundays on Telegraph

Sunday, July 27, 2014

We decided to go to the Berkeley Kite Festival at the marina today. It cost $15 to park and walked about 1/2 mile to the area where they were flying the kites. First thing we did was grab lunch.

My attempt at getting a family picture but didn’t realize that Iris was blocked by the stroller bar.

Then we walked up the hill to attempt to fly our own kites. At least Ron and Simon did. At first Simon was happy.

Then a little concerned and then annoyed then tired. He ended up sitting in the stroller while Ron flew the kites.

It was a beautiful day for flying kites. Clear skies and good breeze.

Simon was a little happier when he got a “mango on a stick”.

After the kite festival, we ended up on Telegraph Avenue for Sundays on Telegraph.

Simon got to be creative and draw with chalk all over the ground on the closed street.

Iris and Daddy watched while Simon was drawing.

On the street was a man making huge bubbles. A big hit with both kids.

Then we had a snack at “Taste”.

Taro shaved snow with red beans and mochi. Very rich and creamy.

Mango shaved snow with fresh mango, strawberries, and mochi. A little more icy and too sweet for my taste.

It was a beautiful day spent outdoors.
