Saturday Snapshot – Balloons

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a link over at At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see.

I love this meme because it’s so nice to see a more personal side to fellow blogger buddies.  This is my first time participating, but I’m sure it won’t be my last.

On Thursday night, my mom and I went to the Blossom Time Balloon Glow in the village about 10 minutes from us.  I wish we’d been able to take Gage because he’d have loved it, but it was past his bedtime and he’s still not completely over his cold. 

Ten hot air balloons inflated on a practice field and lit themselves up, to the delight of the hundreds (thousands?).  They’ll be racing them all weekend.

    That would have been an awesome sight to behold!! I’ve always wanted to go into a hot air balloon but I’m too chicken!

    So glad you joined this meme, it’s a fun one! Your photos are beautiful! Gage will love to go next year and will have even more fun. 🙂 (Hope he’s feeling better!)

    We’ve had a balloon rally here in our little town every July for the last 25 years or so. We get approximately 30 balloonists and have a weekend of events including 4 launches if the weather permits. We’ve even had a few land in our field over the years. It really is a spectacular sight to see all those colorful balloons in the sky!

    That’s so cool! I’ve only seen a few hot air balloons…maybe they stay away from the ocean? But I love to look at pictures of them…so colorful and happy looking!

    i would love to go to one again.

    Incredible picture. I’ve always wanted to ride on a hot air balloon, every since I watched The Wizard of Oz as a child. It’s still on my bucket list!
