We were joined by good friends and I'm pretty sure that we all had a great time. I'm already excited for next year's festival. I think it will be even more fun...now that we know what it's all about we will be prepared with lawn chairs and empty stomachs to load up on yummy, greasy, carnival food! What's even better is that the event is held just a couple of miles from our land...which will hopefully eliminate the full hour we waited in line in our car trying to get out of the parking lot!
Here's a few pictures that capture the evening...
There are tethered balloon rides if that suits your fancy...
Here's our group, minus Brock (someone had to take the photo) who was our leading man of the night! Thank goodness for him and all his help with the kids. He wouldn't have missed it...he know very well how much I adore hot air balloons!!
My lifelong friend and her adorable daughter...finally we thought to take of picture together with our babies! love her
Here's Tytus and Eli...I love those big smiles!
I should probably rephrase that: The inflatables tore up the boys...Beau and Tytus had 'burns' all over their elbows and tummies from sliding so many times!
I just love this kid...and I'm so glad we can just drag, urr, I mean take him anywhere and everywhere and he is so easy-going!
Wait, maybe I spoke too soon...Cash was beginning to get a bit impatient as we waited for the balloon glow.
I wonder how much a balloon costs?
Do you have to have a license to pilot one?
Can I fit all three car seats in the basket?
How long will it take my family to get tired of me singing
"Up, up and away in my beautiful balloon"?
