Kite flying was a popular hobby when I was a kid. You could buy them in all the convenience stores in the spring.

I can't even tell you how many Gayla Sky Spy Baby Bat kites I lost in trees over the years. It has to be a world record.

There is a family-friendly kite-focused event coming up at the Al Mangham Regional AIrport in Nacogdoches that caught my eye. It's The Family Kite Fest and it's a benefit for a great cause.
