I love the Hot Air Balloons

Saturday, August 01, 2015

We have an annual Hot Air Balloon and Spedie Fest in our area. I don't always make it to the park, but this year there was a concert I wanted to see so we did go. We have to have perfect weather for all the balloon releases and that does not always happen, but thankfully the first two have gone off well. My son volunteers at the event every year and this morning he got to go in a balloon for the morning launch. I told him that it was a bucket list item for me, but I needed to also make it a weight loss reward. I'm too heavy at the moment in my mind to take a ride.

We live close enough that some times the balloons even make it into our neighborhood. His balloon didn't make it here, but one of them did. Here is the one that flew over our house and landed a couple of houses over.

Last night we were in the park for that launch. As you can see they bunch them right in as the blow them up.

Up, up and away! I hope you have a great weekend.
