so the fun began when we woke up way before the sun & got ready. it takes a hour to drive to the ballooning location from where i live, so we left at around 5:30am. once we got there, we got a cup of hot chocolate, since it was still pretty cold outside! then, we walked around as all the people started setting up their balloons!! then all of a sudden, dozens of balloons were filling with hot air all around us! it is always so amazing. they are so pretty & colorful. definitely worth the early morning!!!
& i don't know for sure, because i have never gone on a hot air balloon ride, but the idea of floating around the sky in a cute basket beneath a big colorful balloon just seems pretty magical, i think. maybe a little scary too.... haha! has anyone ever taken a hot air balloon ride? i would love to hear what it was like?? :)
so anyway, here are my photos from this beautiful day! :)
