West Texas Balloon Fest

Hubs and I headed out to the West Texas Balloon Fest with Millary this year. We made it in time for the 'Light it up' portion of the show. We got there kind of late and ran out of the car to see them light all of the balloons up. Unfortunately, each time they lit the balloons up it didn't last but for just a couple of seconds, and they weren't always all lit up at the same time. I was kind of bummed out that it wasn't quite as cool as I was expecting. We walked around for a little while to see what all was going on. It was almost like a miniature fair with the games and booths. Too bad that night was incredibly windy and the sand/dirt was blowing everywhere. We didn't stay too long.

They were giving small hot air balloon rides in this balloon. It looked pretty neat.

We had hoped to see the balloons take off the next morning so hubs and I went out and got donuts and sat in the parking lot to watch. After about 20 minutes of waiting, we were told that they were not going to do their 'fly out' because the wind conditions were too strong. Darn. Maybe next year! :)
