My laptop is up and running again, so you can find more pics than you probably want of the Balloon Fiesta over at our Family Blog.
I'll share just a few of our favorites here.
First, the bambinos - who were just giddy and goofy over all the excitement.
I'm not sure what's up with this face, but he was doing it all morning.
It really was a great morning for our whole family!
We each seemed to have our own favorite when it came to the balloons and there were some that were almost too incredible to wrap your mind around...
Greeted by Darth Vader as we entered the gates
Noah's Ark inflating amongst the sea of balloons
A giant ice cream cone. I mean, it's ice cream...who wouldn't love it.
Spider Pig, of course.
These three bees are always fun - they travel from Ireland each year and the three balloons always launch together.
The usually separate quickly but these two floated off holding hands for quite awhile.
And finally this guy, who was my personal favorite. I loved how it looked like he was playing with the cars as we drove by.
How about you? What's special about your city? What do you look forward to all year long that you can't find anyplace else?
