Just like the last two years, we made an appearance at the annual balloon glow this year. Sadly it’s starting to get a little repetitive. It’s the same balloons every year and there aren’t any activities for the kids to do. Lee came up with a couple suggestions to make it a little more interesting. (1) They could actually lift off and fly away. Or (2) one of them could catch on fire. Um..ok. I’m pretty sure the city, and the balloon owners, will frown on that second suggestion.
But regardless, we still had fun.
One tradition the kids really love are the tattoos. Spencer and Caleb picked out their favorite patriotic tattoo and displayed them proudly.
Then we found a patch of grass and copped a squat on the kids’ blankets where we dined on yummy Chex Mix. Did you now there is a honey and a caramel flavor? They are delicious.
To keep the kids entertained we pulled out our cell phones and let the kids take pictures. They took about 100 pictures; 80% of which are so blurry you can’t tell what’s going on in the picture. But they had fun so that’s all that matters right?
After a while they ran in to a friend from school and began to play tag until it got so dark we could barely see them.
We did get some great pictures of the balloons all lit up. I don’t care what anybody says. Yes, they are the same balloons every year, but they are so pretty. And with the grainy pictures our cell phones take, Lee was able to get his wish too…sort of. He got a shot of a lit up balloon and the pictures makes it look like it’s on fire.
