The Great Southeast Balloon Fest

I just wanted to share some photos from this morning and yesterday morning. This weekend...our little town is hosting The Great Southeast Balloon Fest. They have competitions for the balloons and there's also musical entertainment, food and fireworks. It's family friendly fun for the weekend. Who doesn't love to see a sky filled with hot air balloons?

When I took this photo this morning...I intended to delete it later. I thought it was definitely the worst one yet. Once I opened it up...I changed my mind. I really like that little bit of sun reflecting on the side. I think it's actually my favorite now. :P *You can click them to make them bigger*


This one was just pure, dumb luck. Yay! I caught the balloon with the state logo on it! A few more seconds and he would have been gone behind the trees.

This is my best one from yesterday. The sky was really hazy and this one just happened to be crossing almost directly overhead. I had to pull the car over to get it but luckily there wasn't much traffic out here.


Another one from yesterday....hazy sky. It isn't a very clear photo but I like that there's a group of them together. This morning the sky was better so I'm hoping that tomorrow will be even better still. I'm hoping to get out and snap some more photos when they go up again but not sure that's gonna happen. I think the kids will enjoy seeing them too. They've been in school when all this is going on. They did get to see a couple this morning but the majority of them don't pop up until after they've gotten to school.

Hope you enjoyed the photos...just wanted to share. Now back to the knitting.

Hugs!
