Hot Air Balloons

Yesterday we all woke up at 5:30 to go to a hot air balloon festival. I didn't know what to expect and I was a little nervous that we would get up so early for nothing. All my worrying was for nothing. We had so much fun. We got to the park at 6:30 as they started to fill the balloons with air. We got to watch eight balloons be filled with air, the air warmed up, and the balloons take off. All the kids had a blast. The only regret was that we couldn't go up in a balloon. We learned a few things and we will be prepared next year because this is something we will go to again and again.  It was that much fun and it was FREE!

Here are some of the balloons as they are being filled with air.

Then they will heat the air and turn the balloons upright.

As the balloons lifted off they drop candy down to all the waiting kids. The kids would run from balloon to balloon as they left the ground!
