Tonight, we just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Let me explain.
I have a dear friend from college who has these amazing family photos from hot air balloon shows.
So, when we spotted this hot “ah ba-loo” after dinner, I grabbed my camera.
The “ah ba-loo” was great, but for a moment, I had more fun watching them.
“Ah Ba-loo!” Can’t you almost hear him say it?
And then we got distracted…again…by a plane.
“Biiig ah pee!”
Did you see it, Ma? It was there, and there, and then…
Ok, but back to the balloon.
It appeared to be getting closer, so we headed out to follow it on our evening walk.
Do you see it? It’s just behind those houses!
It landed just around the corner from our house!
The fire truck might be an indication that this was not the first landing choice.
But, everyone was okay.
So we stayed to watch the deflation.
It was awesome. Really. Awesome.
And, as amazing as this was to see in person, I am so thankful to have had my camera.
Because this image will always be in my heart. But now, it might just find a place in theirs.
