Balloon crazy

We discovered a fun family activity this weekend that will likely turn into an annual tradition: the Colorado Balloon Classic. This huge hot air balloon festival isn't quite as large as the one in Albuquerque each October, but it comes close!

On Saturday morning we left home at 5:30 a.m. so we could get a great spot in the launch field and watch the balloonists set up, inflate, and launch their hot air balloons. What a fun experience!

After all of the balloons were in the air, the big boys enjoyed the "kid zone," which had some pricey activities. We splurged on a few, the most fun and rewarding of which was the rock wall. Tyler (on the right) almost made it to the top, but he got too tired to finish. Zach was a little nervous about being up so high, but he did a great job, too.

We had such a fun morning together! The evening "balloon glo" promised to be awesome, too. Pictures to come!

P.S. Thanks to Garry for all of these amazing photos, and for the blog's new design!
