Balloon Festival

Last Sunday morning we decided to head to the Plano Balloon Festival before church.  We had never been and thought the kids would LOVE seeing the balloons go up in the air.  Well it was very east Plano and about 30 minutes away from us.  We might have been a little too ambitious, but they were supposed to have the balloons "glow" at 6:30am and then the actual launch was at 7am.  Well we wanted to make sure we made it on time, so we woke up at 5:30am and left at 6:00am.  Needless to say, the kids were pretty tired.  We got there and couldn't even tell where the balloons were.  They ran about 45 minutes late and it was a little while to wait with cranky kids.  But they did get excited to see the balloons and were able to ride several rides and jump in some bounce houses.

 Caroline was all smiles until the ride actually started.  She got a little scared and we had to stop it.   She was so brave though to go on it alone!
 Cooper hung out in his pajamas all morning.

We made it home in time for Cooper to take a nap and still made it to the 11:15am church service.  We'll probably for sure go again next year, however we will definitely be sleeping in and enjoying the day at the festival!

*Thanks to my wonderful in-laws, I have been able to take pictures again!  My camera isn't quite fixed, but they let me borrow their nice one for the time being.  I'm hoping mine comes quickly!!  Thanks Grandpa and Grandma!
