Hot Air Balloons

Waking up to see the hot air balloons is by far my favorite thing about the 4th of July. We got up bright and early this morning to go. I can't believe this is Mckinley's third year in a row.

Still a little tired... 

I think the pig was her favorite. It's the one she talked about most after anyway.

I love watching her watch the balloons go up.

This year was by far the most exciting. First of all, my neice Haley got to ride up in a balloon with Brandon's dad. I totally want to do that some day!

The other part that made it awesome was just the amazing weather. A lot of the balloons made it back to the field to participate in the competition. Usually none of them or maybe just one or two make it back. But it was a lot more exciting this year and just really fun to watch.
