Balloons

On Saturday afternoon, Jason came running out of our office saying he heard a really weird noise outside our house. He went out back and insisted that I come look. This is what we saw:


I had forgotten that it was the weekend for our annual balloon classic, and certainly had no idea that our neighborhood was one of the targets. The balloons play a game (well the people IN the balloons, you get the idea) of landing on specific targets in the area to get points, and somewhere near our neighborhood was one of the targets!


The picture below is directly across the street from our house. They landed in the field just behind that grey house. TOO COOL!!



What a fun surprise for a Saturday afternoon!

Awesome! I love hot air balloons!

I went to a balloon festival last summer and it was the coolest thing... there were balloons shaped like farms, fish, you name it!

LOVE IT! They do this in east Texas where I am from - I always LOVE seeing the balloons. They also do balloon glows at night where you go to a spot and they all light up - super cool.

Great pictures! FUN!
