Last year Chris, Kelsey and Sweetpea came to visit us during Balloon Fiesta . . . and it rained! Because of the weather, the Mass Ascension was delayed. Sweetpea was only 10 months old then, and we felt we shouldn't keep her out in the wet, chilly, early morning air any longer, so we came home and watched the balloons on TV. Because of the delayed start, not even half of the balloons lifted off that Saturday. We felt so bad that Chris and Kelsey had come all that way, without getting to enjoy the festivities.
This year, on the other hand, the weather couldn't have been any better. I kept wishing that the kids could have been here today. Please take a couple minutes to view my pictures, here.
