Full Of Hot Air



This past Saturday morning, we heard the familiar whoosh noise of hot air balloons, flying over the house. Mom grabbed her camera, and ran outside! These are just a few of the many shots she got. She said it was so pretty to see, as there were many of them. This is a fairly common occurrence, when the wind is blowing just right. Some of the people saw Mom and waved to her. She asked if they were having fun, and of course they answered with a big yes! Her favorite pics are the last two. (Bet you all thought by the title, that I was full of hot air!)

Great shots! Apparently you must have a launching site somewhere nearby? I would never want to go up in one of those, I'm a chicken!

Very beautiful pics of the hot air balloons over your house, they flew very low!
I'm with Peggy, I wouldn't want to go up in one though! What if they get a hole in the balloon?!
LOL

That has only happened to me once and it was only one hot air balloon but I was so excited. Didn't get a pic though. We do have a guy here in town that has a contrapion that looks like a bicycle with a big balloon attached that flies over this area on real pretty days. We are so use to him that we don't get excited anymore.

Oh Billy tell MOM she did a great job on the pictures. Mom loves hot air balloons too but only from the ground MOL
