Up, up and away

Many years ago I was lucky enough to crew for a hot air balloon. I've always loved them and at one time I dreamed of having one of my own. That never happened but I still love seeing them fly. Last weekend Emily and I went to a nearby town that was having their annual balloonfest. We had so much fun chasing the balloons. Here are just a few of the many pictures I took.

  2. Looks like you had a fun time Terry :-) The 5th photo down looks just like a quilt! I guess you were chasing them by car, not on foot...?!

  4. Such fun! Brings back memories of waking in the wee hours of the morning to that woooosh sound they make, and looking out my bedroom window to see them floating by! Hope you are well! XO

  10. My mother in law lives in Albuquerque NM (I bet you know what I'm going to say next) and of course we been to Balloon Festival. There is nothing like being on the field while those balloons are going up. I love it. Being on the crew must have been the best.
