This weekend we went to the Plano Hot Air Balloon Festival. This is something I've wanted to do since we moved here, but for some reason we've missed it every year. It did not disappoint! Daniel and Amy, I thought about you guys the whole time. We miss you!
This is exactly why I wanted us to have a Suburban. Heath, Janelle, and Ella piled in with us.
Bring on round 1 of the corndogs. This was only a warm up for the State Fair.
Jackson wore us out with his desire to work the room. Or rather, play the field.
There was a flyover by some special planes, but my camera wouldn't capture it. It did capture this, which I love.
Janelle and Ella. AKA Janella.
Not so sure what to think about the clown.
She painted a rocket for my boy.
Notice that Target's balloon is flying high above the rest.
Just trying to get a little shade here.
BEHOLD, THE BALLOONS! Jackson was so excited when we climbed the big hill and saw everything from above. This was after he did a little dance for us.
This was the coolest part. They would count down and all light up at the same time. Awesome!
The one picture that's missing is the one of the two Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders who were there. I would have felt really weird taking their picture. I am totally obsessed with their reality show on CMT. I have a weakness for "making the team" shows (like Making the Band several years ago) and since this one is set in my town, I cannot stop watching it! I prefer to record it and watch it when my wonderful husband is not sitting next to me.
So, if you are ever in Dallas at the time of this festival, you have to go! Especially if you have kids or if you like to take pictures. Or even if you just like corndogs. I will never miss another one.
