BallonFest 2008 Day 2

ok i just had to post day 2 of the balloon fest here in our town... my hubby and i went to melanie's house (lilknitter) and on our way there we saw 2 way off in the distance... when we left and headed home we saw a bunch more so i called her and told her... well needless to say that once we got about 1 block from our neighborhood we saw that they were landing in the grocery store parking lot across from our neighborhood... i called her up and told her and she came on... we got home and grabbed the camera and walked up the road to see what was up and let me get more pics...this is what we got... not all by any means.... just a few...


this one went right over (pretty close if you ask me) to our neighbors house...


this one i thought was just too cute not to take a picture of...

if you look real carefully you can see the woman who was helping out (she's towards the root of the tooth in red) and you get a pretty good idea of how big these balloons really are and i would say at least half the air was out of it at this point....

this one landed in the other grocery store parking lot... just 1 row over from where melanie was parked

ok this concludes my balloon fest pictures for today... i am off to go check out melanie's blog and see her pics... so stop by and check hers out too... have a great day /night...chat at ya laters :Þ

Balloon Fest 2008

this weekend began the BalloonFest in our town... i had my camera with me so i could grab a few shots... i got to work before my boss did and she called me and said ... grab your camera and a drink and out a note on the door we are going to go watch... well these are just a few of the ones i took... these were taken yesterday (friday) around 8:30 am...



this was just a few of the balloons that were up and flying...



when we first stopped and was observing we ran into a couple of chasers... and they were telling us about the contest they were having so we went to observe....in the feild where all the people are standing there is a big X there and the balloons had to be so far up before they could drop their marker and the closest to the big X wins... you can see the white squiggly looking thing that's what they were dropping... it looked like a high air version of toilet papering...

on my way back to where my boss had pulled off the side of the road she was motioning to me to "look up" ... and i had my camera ready to go and this is what i caught... it was way too cool...

thanks for dropping by and looking at the balloons... have a great day/night... chat with ya's later :Þ
