On Mother's Day, Rick and I got up very early...4:30am early and drove out west to the polo fields to see the Balloon Festival. It was an amazing to see all these colorful balloons filling up and taking off as the sun came up. Then it was our turn for a ride! Neither of us had ever been up in a hot air balloon before.
The feeling was so strange...not exactly weightless more no sensation at all. We were actually talking away to the pilot and didn't even realize we were already about 50 feet off the ground! There is more motion going up in an elevator than in the balloon. It was crazy!
This was one of the most amazing things I have ever done and it made this Mother's Day one of the most special! Thank you Boo for always going on crazy adventures with me even at 4:30 in the morning! I love you so very much!
And an added bonus when we got home, brunch with all the kids! Apple cinnamon pancakes! YUM!!!
