I had no idea that we'd be right on the field where the trucks unloaded and launched the balloons! It was really fantastic! Jace was a bit overwhelmed so he got held most (or all) of the time but the rest of the kids ran from balloon to balloon. I think they launched 500 balloons in 4 hours. Pretty impressive. All the kids got to ride in balloons that were tethered to the ground; so they went up about 20-25 feet.
It was fun to be under one roof with my brothers families. Our kids have a great time together and once they go to sleep, the grown ups have fun together too! Saturday night, we sat around telling stories about fights we've been in. My favorites were Liz's "desert party" story and Brad's "saved by Christian Nielson" story! I love that Brad of mine! He is so pure. :)
