Getting ready to launch
Flying High
Deflating time
letting the kids "help"
getting the hot air out

Who would think all that balloon would fit into this little bag

One of my best friends growing up was Heather Kelly. Her family lived down the street and although they already had 10 kids, I felt like I was an adopted member of their family. Heather's dad and now brother fly hot air balloons. I have many fond memories of getting up at 5 a.m. to help inflate, chase and put away the hot air balloons. Today I had a chance to take my kids to see it first hand. I think they had a great time. We missed some of the inflating, but chased the "piggy bank" to where it landed. Bronson (Heather's brother) was so good with the kids and let them "help" with deflating the big balloon. The kids had a ball!
