Up, Up and Away

It is that time of year again for the wonderful festival of 'Balloons over Waikato'
For 4 full days there are hot air balloon activities.
The boys love watching the balloons and seeing the different novelty ones that come here each year.
We managed to attend some of the displays and as usual it consists of balloons and more balloons.
So here is my picture story of what we have seen......

Take one balloon, lots of people and some hot air

Hello, is there anyone out there??
Boo, it's me Jack

Ben even got to have a little lift off in a balloon. The balloon stayed tethered the whole time, just lifted off the ground 10 metres.

Today we didn't manage to get to the common where it is all held, but we did get to stand at the top of our stairs at home and watch 15 balloons sail over Hamilton at 8am in the sunny blue sky with the mist and fog just lifting, it loked beautiful.
