Reno Balloon Race 2009

It all began when the alarm went off at 3:15 am. Lily and I went with our friends up to Reno for the Hot Air Balloon Races. Boy was it fun! The show started with the Dawn Patrol, 4 balloons that are all lit up and are synchronized to music. Then, when the sun came up, planes flew overhead. It was pretty exciting! Here are the shots from the day:


Lily and her silly faces!

Lily has a great friend, Ira. They get along pretty good!

It's sooooooo early!

They launched 100 balloons! This is an event that we'll definitely attend next year!

We thought about going, but 3 am is so early. Maybe that seemed early beacuase of the 1 am bed time for me.

we enjoyed the balloon races last year but really couldn't bring ourselves to get up that early again. the kids have gone 2 years in a row and we think that's good. been there, done that...kind of thing. now on to the next state! jk that's our family joke. get the experience and move on. LOL. so glad you had fun! i glowing balloons are my favorite.
