Balloons.... Gotta love balloons!!!!

On another day of our "Staycation" we went south to the Provo Balloon Festival that is part of the Provo Freedom Fest. We got there a little late for the pre-dawn inflation and balloons lit from the inside. But we still got there in time to see some fun balloons in the air.

I was particularly excited to see Darth Vader in the sky, a little freaked but excited! Who thought of making one of those? I like the piggy bank too, but we have seen that one before.

There is something deeply enjoyable for me, to look up at a balloon from below. Don't know what it is, but I just get this peacefully excited feeling when I look up at them. Probably due to imagining myself up there. I have never been up in a Hot Air Balloon, but would love to one day! (Bucket List!!! Along with floating from Flaming Gorge to Lake Powell in a raft.)

One High... One Low...

There was not a lot of wind, these guys decided to just set 'er down where they could. In the middle of football practice....

The Coca Cola balloon is supposed to be the largest in the world, and it is HUGE!!!!! They did not fly it just inflated it! sigh.......

They did invite me into the basket while they blew more hot air in. Kinda hot there, but a fun perspective!

Ah.... I LOVE balloons!
