Up, up in the sky!
The local hot air balloon festival was held this past weekend. It was a perfect welcome home after our beach vacation. The weather wasn't cooperating for balloon flights, but it was perfect weather for kites! The kids got to watch a really talented kite flyer, and were quite amused by his tricks. He was able to have the kite lift off the ground super fast, and then plummet down, stopping inches from the ground. He was also making it wave to them, and dance quite impressively. It was so fun watching them scream with laughter.
While it was disappointing that the balloons couldn't fly, we did get a dramatic and fiery light show that prompted loads of questions from the littles.
