This past weekend Boise decided to do the hot air balloon lift off, I'm sure it wasn't a last minute decision. Anyone in town could get up early and head down to Ann Morrison Park and watch the balloons take off.
Saturday morning came and we dragged ourselves out of bed while it was still dark! We headed over to the park and saw the droves of people. It was a little more busy then I had realized. But thankfully Daddy knew what to do and he took us into the middle of the balloons, no standing on the side for us. We were feet away from the hot air balloons while they filled up and then took off!
Chas is always happy for a photo opportunity. The two oldest kids loved watching the balloons take off, even given the loud noise.
The balloons they just kept blowing up and up and up.
By far our favorite balloon was rocket.
While we were heading out they began the port-a-pottie knock over contest. Yes the balloons got low and began knocking over port-a-potties. It was pretty funny. Of course we were getting hungry and a certain someone was done with sitting in her storller.
Next year we are marking our calendars and heading out to this fun hot air balloon event again, it's a family must do.
