Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival

Each Father's Day weekend, our family has the tradition of heading to the Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. Here are some pictures from this year's evening of family joy:

The balloons setting up, and Caleb watching each and every step:

Watching the glorious balloons fill up, and having a family picnic:

It's starting to go "up, up, up!":

Mommy and Caleb:

Sneaking a super mommy-snuggle:

Up, up, and away:

"Oooooooooooooooooh":

Pure amazement. One can never get too old to watch a hot-air balloon with joy!:

A quick family portrait, to capture an awesome, family-fun, memory-making, day:

4 friends had a thing or two to say...:
