Balloon Fest {weekend update}

This weekend was the annual Food and Balloon Festival for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Festivities. They have all kinds of food vendors and a hot air balloon launch...which is amazing. If you've never seen one, you should find one and go watch. They said the baskets themselves weigh 500 or more pounds plus the people inside...for hot air to be able to lift that balloon which I'm sure weighs a whole lot itself...it's just incredible! Here are some pictures...enjoy!



Balloon animals...this is my friends little boy. He's adorable with a monkey on his head! :)


Crazy sky divers...crazy! They jumped 3 times that day. They had some crazy statistics too...like 5000 jumps or something like that. I would love to do it one day...buy my husband says NO! :)





I didn't even notice that light pole in the way there until just now...I'm going to have to edit that out! :0/


Creepy clown face...



Of course my favorite...the lady bug!




Me and honey! Excuse the nasty picture...I had the worst headache of my life, this picture was on a hill that I was falling down, hot, tired, and a bit grouchy! :)


The following pictures are from my phone...so not as great quality...still do the job though!


Wonderful turkey leg...I mean wonderful!




Ended the night with amazing fireworks. These were the best fireworks that I've seen in a while. I'm happy because I didn't get to see any on the 4th!


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I'm going to be doing lots of crafting this week!! Can't wait! Maybe a little baking too! Eeeek! Baking is my favorite!!
