ABQ Balloon Fiesta

October 8, 2012

Dear Family,
We went to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta last weekend and it was freezing, but oh so fun!  I made breakfast burritos the night before and at 4:00am we headed out with our breakfast in the backpack.

It was still dark when we got to the Fiesta.  You weren't sure what all the hype was about.  It was a large field, with lots of baskets in the back of trucks.


When the first balloon ascended they played the National Anthem and I got a little choked up.


As more balloons went into the air you started to get excited, pointing out all the different colors and shapes.


It was neat to be able to walk so close to the balloons as they were being inflated.  We could reach and touch them.





Every direction you looked there was another balloon going into the sky and it was fun to pick out our favorites.






Everyone really enjoyed the "special shape" balloons.  Atticus said he wanted to pop the angel though because she was, "so ugly".  He was bummed the Darth Vader balloon never made it into the air because of the wind.











Because it was so cold and windy a lot of the balloons didn't go up this year, but we still loved every minute.


This is my favorite picture; I love how the lone balloon looks beside the wispy clouds and moon.


Thanks for a memorable day!  All my love, Me
