Yesterday afternoon a hot air balloon landed in our front yard. Calvin saw it first, and alerted us to it. I scrambled for the camera, but could only find the video camera, so the quality of these shots isn’t the best. Carley and I went out to say hi. Hobee is very afraid of hot air balloons, when they go overhead he hides, so with one in his yard he was beside himself.
The friendly crew greeted us, and thanked us for “letting them drop in” as they said. They gave us a bottle of champagne for letting them land (a ballooning tradition, I later found out). I thanked them for the champagne, and for landing and making our afternoon!
After a few minutes, and a crew change, they were off to continue their adventure.
