Last weekend we went to the balloon glow here in our neck of the woods. It is awesome! They blow the hot air balloons up in three baseball diamonds and they do it right among all the people.

My kids loved it! At one point a man called Matthew over to the back side of the balloon as it was being inflated. He wanted to show Matthew what it looked like on the inside and Matthew climbed right into the balloon. It was the best hot air balloon festival I have ever been to.

|Aren't these awesome!?|
|This was the point where Matthew just climbed right into the balloon.|
|I love these too. They really show you the scale of these balloons.|
|The heat was intense even from 10 or more feet away. I can't imagine what it would feel like from in the basket.|
