My boys and I had another fun day at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Our day started at 4:30 AM when we awoke to leave for the event. After picking up a friend and driving we arrived at the event at 6:00 AM. It was dark outside and the above pictures show the first balloons going up. These balloons go up to test the wind condition as the balloons can't go up if it is too windy.
Then the balloons begin to inflate. It is so cool to be able to watch the balloons and to be right next to them.
The balloons begin to take off, one by one. It is such an incredible sight to see.
It is cold outside and I enjoy a great cup of coffee.
Today was special shapes balloons. My boys enjoyed watching all the different balloons go up. There was over 100 special shaped balloons in addition to regular ones. Enjoy the photos. Want to see more? Visit http://www.balloonfiesta.com/
