  1. Awsome!

  2. Now that’s what a family is all about ! AWESOME ! Do it again, and again, and again, and again… Some memories are just as good as when the memory was made, and this is one of those ! …on a budget… Well, everyone sure got a lot of bang for the buck on this one. Man, I would have loved to been there and seen this event.

    • Check back later… We were just there for the 3:00 lift off and are now following them north (south this am) this time… 🙂
      Good this I slept at home 2 hours.

  3. This was fun. Not only did we see some cool balloons land, but we also saw some pretty scenery too. The sun light was perfect for snapping really cool pictures.

  4. These balloons were really colorful (and fantastic). I bet the kids had a day!

    • It was fun! My grandparents come from Norway, Sweden, and that area… Since we can’t travel much kids and I look at photos on blogs from areas… It’s like traveling… Kind of 🙂
