Balloons 2011

No summer would be complete, for me, without a trip down to Indianola for the National Balloon Classic. This year, we didn't make it down till the very last night, but it was worth it.
Not too much wind and depending on how high the balloons were, the wind was changing direction, so balloons were taking off from all sides of the field and flying in, it was a lot of fun to watch!

Lots of balloons dotting the skyline!

New this year was the Panda Shaped balloon

...and there was a bald eagle shaped balloon too!

It kind of feels like a family reunion going out to the balloon field, most of my actual family is there and then lots of people (who feel like family) that I have gotten to know throughout the years are there too, so it is always fun to catch up on how everyone is doing. We had a great time watching the balloons fly, as always.
