Balloons, Balloons, Balloons

Saturday, we went to the California, MO first ever Balloon Invitational.  We had heard about it from a friend on facebook (don’t you LOVE facebook!) anyway, we decided it sounded like a fun thing to do.  I really like seeing the pictures of the balloons in Albuquerque, NM and would like to go to that someday. 

It started at 7, we got into town early, but it was so hot, we didn’t want to sit around in the field waiting for 7.  Killed some time in McDonald’s because they had a play place.  Sure is funny the places you go when you have kids huh?  It was cool and kept Kasey occupied for a while, so that’s what is important.

The first balloon to air up was the Missouri Lottery one.

I think there were 20 or 22 total.  I am not sure I heard the total count and didn’t count them. CIMG6275 CIMG6282 CIMG6284 CIMG6287 CIMG6288 CIMG6291 CIMG6297

  1. I had no idea that something like this happened in Missouri! Who knew? (No one on facebook told ME!)

    What a fun place to make some memories!
