I love it when Freedom Weekend Aloft comes to town! Living less than 5 miles away from the balloon launching site we have the wonderful opportunity to sit on our back steps and watch them pass by. Tonight, they didn’t come as close as they did last year, but there are still two days left and I feel sure we’ll see them close up before the event is over.

Here are our first sightings from tonight:


Here’s a picture from last year. This is what I’m waiting for!


I can’t close out today’s post without mentioning Megan’s rebuttal to my “Why I Hate Heat” posting from yesterday. She does have some good points (as usual!) I’m so glad she’s my daughter-in-law. 🙂
