It's balloon time!!!

October is here, and that means hot air balloons if you live in Albuquerque. I grew up watching the balloons every year, and they often landed right behind our house in an open field. This year, my sister-in-law, her mom, and her friend came for the event. We headed out at 4:30am on Saturday to make sure we were there to watch from beginning to end. If you have never experienced a REAL balloon fiesta, you need to come to NM in October. It's simply amazing. I took over 70 pictures- you would think this was my first time to experience the wonder! Check out our picture page for more pics. Here are just a few...





Special shapes are my favorite. Seriously, go check out the rest of my pics!

We had a Hot Air Balloon show in my town some years ago, it was really impressive watching them silently drift by high above us. Very beautiful, would love to go up in one of the little baskets.
