Up, Up and Away-ay in My Beautiful Bal-loon…

The annual Prosser Balloon Round-Up is this weekend.  Like last year, we showed up bright and early.

So did my family.  My sister, her husband, and their kids and my parents.  Cora and Emma went off in search of the sights.  Of course, when you hear those burners going, you have to run around and see the flames.

Here is a shot of my dad.  He tends to shun being the center of a camera’s attention, however, I explained to him that this camera of mine WILL locate and focus in on him whether he likes it or not, so he had better just get used to it…

They like to settle into the water and back out again.

I’m not sure why…maybe their feet get hot.

I have not come down to earth yet either. I just hope that all my hot air hold me up for a long time. And only land when all is safe and sound and on the ground.
