Our Real Life "UP" Encounter

A couple weeks ago we all attend a balloon glow. It is something we never knew occurred and it was only down the street from us every year during the the Sandy Balloon Festival. About 8 hot air balloons are laid out in a large field and blown up. My kiddos LOVED watching them slowly being filled up.  To make the event even more fun we were joined by grandma/pa Fergy and Uncle Davey. We had tons of candy and sat across the street on some blankets playing, listening to the live music, watching the beautiful balloons being inflated.
Phoebe and Josh were running around "flying like hot-air balloons" , which look more like airplanes to me and Cami was just thrilled (can't be over emphasized  to keep pointing out all the balloons right behind us over and over.
When the balloons were all inflated and it was dark you could see all the beautiful balloons glowing in the night sky as they lit their flames periodically. they didn't picture well, but they really were beautiful.
The most fun part of the even however was the fat that all the balloon operators were letting families climb in the baskets  for pictures.  We waited for a while for our turn and right as we got to our turn Josh decided that he was too scared to get in so unfortunately, Cory just had to stand outside the basket with Josh. Cami even got to push the handles for the flames to shoot up, but unfortunately we didn't get pictures of it, but sh loved it.
This is a REALLY fun family event that will definitely be a new every year tradition and I can't say it enough that you really should go next year if you are in the area!
