Sending Smiles...

This balloon set so reminds me of when I was a young child staying at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Each year there were 2 or 3 days when the hot air balloons would have a gathering at the high school that was just a few blocks from their house. I do believe that this occured around the first part of June each year...maybe it had something to do with the River Fest as well. Anyway, because the wind comes out of the south in Spring and Summer the balloons almost always went right over the house. I still remember the sound they make....I can make that sound I just can't put it into letters,LOL. It was a real treat to get to go down to the school and watch the balloons air up and take off. Even at that early part of my life I was fascinated by all the color and designs on the balloons. There is a balloon launch in Topeka in September, I hope to talk my husband into going. Oh, I would LOVE to have some pictures of that!
