up up and away

This weekend I did something I've always wanted to do. Ashland has a hot air balloon festival every year. This year I went and boy was it beautiful. There were 27 hot air balloons. I was only able to catch a few pictures of them. At night they do something called the "All Glow" which of course means they light up. The balloons were from all over the Midwest.

I went back to the festival with my niece the next day and we took a tethered balloon ride. Here's the view from inside basket.

It was a wonderful ride. You don't even feel like your moving and suddenly your leaving the ground. I loved it!
