there were actually other hot air balloon chasers out too. if you catch a balloon when it lands (ok not literally catch them) they'll give you a collector's card with their balloon name and picture. so total we collected 3. it was so much fun!!!! the last balloon we "caught" let the kids help with packing it away. :)
we did end up going for a walk later and it was beautiful fall (i almost said spring) weather. :)
zosie was enjoying some time on daddy's shoulders and i mentioned how she was taller. she replied "I'm as tall as Jesus!" oh my goodness, the preciousness just oooozes from this child of mine.
