Oh my gosh! I just had to share some of the pictures we took at a local Hot Air Balloon Festival. Apparently, every year this race is held at the Statesville airport in North Carolina. It is an entire weekend filled with fun activities. We only went for one afternoon. We really enjoyed watching all the different balloons fill up and float away. When the first one lifted off, the entire crowd cheered! It was so cool!
My mom said that they are simply the neatest things to see floating in the sky.
My daughter waved as they floated away and said, "Good-bye people!"
