SOOC Weekend: Ballooning

James and I got up to a glorious summer morning. We decided to go check out the annual hot air balloon festival in our town. I took over 200 photos and here is the best SOOC shot:

Looks like candy floss!

The other are 15 of our SOOC favourites:

Baseball Guy!!

From the playground, watching balloons fill up on the field.

Up, up, and awaaaaay ...

Our favourite Sushi balloon

Pepé LePew!!! Mon Cheri!

Through the trees, from the playground.

Fun to watch the balloons ascend and descend. Perfect weather too.

Meanwhile, James adored being able to play, first thing in the morning.

He gave just about everything here a workout.

"I'm here! Look, Mommy!"

Panda again

The Panda is giving rides!
This gives a pretty good perspective of how huge these things are.

Here's hoping that you're enjoying your summer!

Linking up again with Murrieta 365 for some SOOC show and share. I am bending the rules a bit with my words and multiple images, but otherwise it's all SOOC.

Awesome shots! Especially that first one! Seeing the sky line full of colorful balloons is truly an amazing sight.
Our town has an annual balloon fest in the fall, "Balloons, Tunes & Barbecue" I always enjoy seeing them around town.

Awesome! Looks like a fun day! I both want to get in a hot air balloon someday, and am afraid of heights. What's a girl to do? ;)

Thanks, everyone -- it was a lot of fun just being there!

Magicalmiss - they have tethered rides at these festivals, so you can go up in the air, just not very high. The crew ropes pull you back down after a minute or so.

Those pictures are amazing! I'm stuck between how awesome it would be to have all those hot air balloons floating above my house, and fear that my son would be outside for hours on end, screaming up at the balloons and annoying all the neighbors!
