My daughters school was one of the schools chosen to particpate in the early morning balloon aloft. So last Friday they had 2 balloons from the balloon fiesta come to the school at 7AM. My 2 daughters, D#1′s best friend and I dragged ourselves out of bed and went to see the balloons.
They had a blast. Hot chocolate, burritos, and coffee for me(a must at 7AM). They were able to go right up to the balloon baskets, and did’nt have to deal with the crowds.
