Yesterday was a day I’ll keep tucked safely in my file of most lovely memories.
We went to a hot air balloon festival in New Jersey & it was as dreamy a scene as you can imagine. Colorful, whimsical, summery and sweet. And something I’ve never been to before, so it was a treat! I took some pictures because, duh. There were so many people gathered on the field where the balloons were being inflated and sent up — many who had amazing cameras and insane types of lenses. It was just generally an inspiring atmosphere and I was prompted to upload and share some of that ambiance!
Lots of photos coming ‘atchya.
I was really excited during the car ride there and felt the need to selfie:
Now that that’s taken care of…. balloons!:
The first balloon that went up was this rainbow one – it was sort of an inaugural flight soaring high into the clouds and over the entire crowd who was watching below in fascination. :) As you will see shortly, I felt compelled to snap its journey to infinity and beyond!
Next, they started blowing up tons of other balloons and everyone (myself included) was super intrigued and excited to witness the process. Much to our delight, there were all sorts of shapes and characters and designs to watch take their form in the most vibrant of fashions.
(That whale was one of our personal faves by the way.)
And then the sun starting setting and the magic increased by 10 billion <3…
^ there’s our whale friend ready to roll!
Maybe I will also finally post about our Lake George adventures sometime this century ;)
