hot air balloons

I went to a hot air balloon festival this morning! I wasn’t sure if the balloons would launch (rain last night and in the forecast for today) but I managed to drag myself out of bed and head there anyway (they launch at dawn, dawn comes awfully early) – just in case.

They did launch! And it was fabulous! There was a field full of colorful balloons that slowly inflated and then launched. At first, I was disappointed that the sky was cloudy but, when I saw my photos, I was disappointed no more. In fact, I was clap-my-hands-with-glee pleased.

  4. I remember that! Every year we’d be driving down I5 and instantly feel giddy at all the balloons in view. We always promised ourselves we’d go next year. Of course, we never did manage it. I’m so very glad that you did.
