Hot Air Balloons



We woke up bright and early (5:30am) to make it to a local ballooning organization's flight this past Saturday. It was out at Mansfield Dam, which was a very lovely spot. The weather and temperature were perfect. K was nervous about the noise from the burners at first, but he couldn't help being excited by the atmosphere and seeing the hot air balloons filling up and finally lifting off the group. It was really very serendipitous that I heard about this event. We had just been reading about hot air balloons, and this really brought them to life for him.

  1. OH, how wonderful! I wished we had known...it would have been worth the early rise to go see this, as we too have been reading about hot air balloons!

    What an excellent experience!
