balloon morning

It was still dark out when we got up this morning. Denise said that we needed to go to the balloon festival. The first wave of balloon inflation and launches was scheduled to start at 7 AM, and we didn't know how far we'd need to walk to get there. We were pretty lucky in finding a parking spot; we weren't too far from the park.

It was pretty amazing to watch the balloons transform from flat material to big floating balloons. The colors were bright. Some of the balloons were just regular balloon shapes, some were characters out of a book.

I'm very glad we were up and about early this morning; that was fun!
