Full of Hot Air!

We had the Great Southeastern Balloon Festival this past weekend. The festival happens every year and we had 90 balloonists come out to this event! You should see the sky when you can count 50+ hot air is awesome!

You can really get up close with them!

Nolan and Braydon watching them intently...

It is neat to see what is involved with landing them and taking them down.

Braydon saying "CHEEEEEESE!"

Nolan is happy he saw the balloons....thanks Daddy!

This was last one that came overhead.....the pilot turned his hot air on! LOL

I am so impressed with all the wonderful events your family takes in. One day your boys will have wonderful memories . . . not to mention all the things they have been exposed to that will give them topics for their writing in later years. I enjoy your blog - keep it coming!

Thank you Julie. We enjoy going out as a family. Even when the boys are teenagers....we are still going to have a family day! I think it is important...we just have to take turns picking out what the family day will consist of to keep it interesting and fun for all.

What a fantastic family outing. Beautiful balloons and so many, WOW.
Nolan and Braydon look so mesmerized by the excitement of these huge baloons. Great photos capturing their great expressions.

I bet it was so cool to be that close to the balloons. I was only able to see them from a far, and that was amazing. Nice pics too!
