Hot Air Balloon Festival

July 2013 - Yes, I am WAY behind on blogging... but working on getting caught up now.
Waterford, WI has a Hot Air Balloon Festival every year in July.  Last year we stopped out to see the excitement.  There were a ton of vendors selling crafts, toys, and food.  Lots and lots of delicious food.  There were games for the kids to play, music to listen and dance to, and best of all, hot air balloons.  Have you seen a hot air balloon close up?  They are beautiful.  Some day I would love to take a ride in one. 
Carter looks less than enthused in the picture below, but he really was loving all of the excitement. 

They lit the fire in front of us, played music, and filled up the balloons.  It was a windy day so the balloons couldn't leave the ground, but seeing them up close and in person was amazing.  They are huge! 

I even snuck in a horribly fuzzy picture with my husband.  ;-) After all, some times it's about capturing the moment and not the clarity.
