We love Balloon Fiesta!

To kick off balloon fiesta week they do a lift off at the elementary schools all over town. So, we got up early Friday morning to head over to the kids' school to see the balloons inflate and launch. It is really so much fun to see.


And then on Sunday morning we woke up to this amazing sight...


Balloons filled the sky and flew over our house. It was really a spectacular view that we had, the pictures don't do it justice. We even jumped in the car to see some of the balloons landing just a ways up from our house. How much fun.
The balloons were up again this morning and will continue until next Sunday. This is definitely one of the best parts of living here!

Kelsey and I got to do that in Utah last summer. I LOVED it! There is just something about seeing the sky littered with colorful balloons...... so pretty!

That's so cool! I can't believe how many of them there are, and so close to your house.

By the way, I've been meaning to tell you that my cousin is currently on her mission in ABQ and is serving in that city right now, her first area. Do you have sisters in your ward? Her name is Sister Lamb just in case. That would be cool if she ever served in your area because she's awesome. Anyway, just thought I'd ask.

that is very cool. do they let people go up in them, or do you have to own one and be rich to do that? i like the baby-zipped-in-the-coat look.

Or have you just lost your thick Utah skins? I really have no idea, so if it gets cold, I apologize for making fun a tad bit:) Your kids look so dang cute in those hoodies...and you look pretty hot yourself!
