That is right! Hot air Baaaallloooooooons!
So find a spot right up front where you can see all the action as the great beauties start to come to life! (Yes, Mr. Joshua looked like this most of the morning-really not sure about this!)
If you are careful you can even tromp between them with your dad!
You can even get so close you can feel the heat from the gorgeous fire bringing the balloon to life!
Or you can stick with your tough mom to protect you from the fire-breathing type noises coming from those big beauties.
They slowly start to lift their lovely heads...
Suddenly a bunch of them are bobbing around waiting for lift off!
Oh, my goodness! Watch out for balloons that look like crazy monsters named Gizmo!
Hey, look! He is friends with Hopper T. Frog!
Explanation: Every year since Brittany was a baby our family has gone up into the mountains of Utah on Labor Day weekend and basked in the magic that the hot air balloon festival there creates. It was one of our traditions I missed the most. This year William found one in our new part of the world. Although we were all a bit cranky the rest of the day it was wonderful fun. It really is magical. What to come with us next year?
