Up, Up and Away



Well, not away so much.  But definitely up and up. Sam recently experienced his first Plano Balloon Festival - kind of one last hurrah for the summer. We all know he's a big fan of balloons (see here), but this event took it to a whole new level!

He got to see skydivers,



feed Pops some goldfish,

eat some ice cream (of course),


and then it was down on the field for an up-close look at some balloons!  There wasn't enough wind for the balloonists to take off, so they let us on the field to get a better look!  Even better than a launch, in my opinion!


















Another first - Sam's first bus ride!



It was humid and hot, but Sam had a blast watching buh-woohs!
