World Baloon Trophy

Last weekend I got to go to a Hot-Air Balloon Tournament in Luxembourg.  I really do not know why I have not made it to such an event before because I love hot-air balloons.  And this was so much fun.

 Alethia, Heather, and I made a girls night of it.  It was about an hour and a half away on a lake.  We got there just in time for the launch.  It was amazing watching the balloons get blown-up and take shape. 

The animal balloons opened the show, followed by balloons of all different colors. 

We wandered through the fest tents while keeping an eye on the sky for passing balloons. 

Of course Alethia had to have a balloon of her own...

And the food is part of the fun...

chocolate-covered Strawberries

When in Rome...

There were lots of fun activities for the kids...

But, of course, the best part was watching all the colorful balloons go by. 

Next year, we definitely have to stay later because at dusk they set-off lanterns and the view is incredible.  We were pretty wiped-out from VBS, though, and had a long drive home so we ducked out at 9:30.
