The actual balloon festival itself was awesome! Over 400 balloons and 800,000 people were there. It was crazy! Balloons of all different shapes and sizes, from all over the world! There were booths set up with souvenirs and fair food (best part). We split a breakfast burrito and a funnel cake, Natalee's first one, and she loved it! We bought a Christmas ornament, like we do from anywhere we go, and a mug...also a tradition. Both our tree and out cabinet are getting full of fun memories! We love when fall time hits, and we bust out the hot chocolate in our mugs from corpus, Carlsbad caverns, pagosa springs, pikes peak, and now the balloon festival. (I am sure I missed some mugs in there...). Such fun memories with each little sip of hot goodness! I can't wait to decorate our tree again this year! We will be adding ornaments from Corpus Christi, The Alamo, The Balloon Festival, and my parents brought us back one from their trip to Alaska (although the ornament is from Seattle, which is where they stayed the first night.).
Memories...that is what life is all about! Making good ones, that will last.
