Balloons, Balloons, Balloons!

Up, Up and Away!

Have you ever seen anything so colorful? If you have never had the opportunity to see a hot-air balloon up-close and personal, then you are missing something very, very cool.

This is one of the most beautiful experiences. It was even better because I was able to share it with some close family and friends. We had a wonderful time, and the kids just love it up there. Stowe, Vermont that is. Not up in a balloon!
The closest Pal has ever gotten was a tether-ride in a balloon with his Dad. I am completely happy right here on the earth with both feet firmly planted!

Too awesome to describe!

We also went up to the top of Mount Mansfield, which is the highest peak in Vermont. Here is a family photo at the highest peak! (Uh, oh, now you know what I look like!!!!)

It was a great weekend, and all in all I am glad I went. I admit I was not looking forward to it, but I ended up being glad I went. Now next year, I'm not so sure about yet!!!!

Lovely balloon pics! I live in Albuquerque and we have a balloon fiesta every October!

You look wonderful!
A friend of mine lives in Albuquerque and she showed me her pictures from the balloon festival too, and they were gorgeous! What a sight to see.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for your sweet comments. I really appreciated your kind words.

Have a lovely day and God bless,

This sounds like an awesome weekend. Love the family photo. I like my feet on the ground also. However, the balloons are lovely...when you look at them from the ground I mean. :)
