Balloon Festival

Olivia and I returned home from the birthday party and started getting ready for pictures.  It's been a while since the kids have had their pictures taken.  Sadly, I didn't even get one year pictures for Logan because we were moving.  So I've been working on scheduling at 4 year session for Olivia and an 18 month (which turned into a 20 month) session for Logan.

We had to drop off a meal for a MOPS friend who just had a baby.  One more thing to add to our crazy.  Then we headed to meet our photographer.  I was pretty sure Logan was going to be a stinker... and he was.
This is the one teaser she posted.  So it looks like we at least got one of the two of them where they are smiling.  I think Olivia's will turn out good. There might be one or two of Logan by himself that work too.

As soon as our session was over, we were starving so we went to the nearest place we could find.

Then we headed to the balloon festival.  We were suppose to go to one a month or so ago, but the weather wasn't great so we skipped out on it.
Unfortunately we got to the balloon festival a little later than we had planned.  I guess we just tried to pack too much in.  Olivia could see them from her seat.

We actually did end up getting to see the glow (not pictured) while we waited in the forever long line to get in and park.

By the time we walked all the way from our parking and waited in line to get in, most of the balloons had been taken down.  Luckily there were a few left for us to see up close and personal.

The kids didn't know any different though, so they still thought it was cool.

We'll know to go earlier next year.

All wasn't lost.  Olivia spotted the rides from the car and was convinced that she wanted to go on the spinny ride.  I don't do spins. Barf!  But Michael was willing to go with her.  She loved it!

We shared some ice cream and funnel cake, watched the fireworks on our walk to the car, and called it a night.

  1. First of all, great picture! Can't wait to see the rest! I am horrible & hardly have any family pictures with our girls because photography is just so expensive. Second, I have always wanted to go to the balloon festival, but it's always a busy time of year. One of these days we will make it because it sounds like fun!
