After two years of attempting to watch the Jamesville Balloon Fest from afar, we finally, finally saw balloons! We did an early bath night, got all settled in jammies and brought a picnic dinner to the east side of the lake. All through dinner, the sky was empty. Nicholas was incredibly bummed, since the weather seemed iffy all evening. He scanned that skyline for any potential sign of a hot air balloon like it was his assignment!
After two years of repeatedly reading Nicholas' favorite book about Curious George going in a hot air balloon, William spotted his first balloon.
Nicholas was thoroughly impressed with the whole idea of people going in balloons. Some of them even went right over our car and we could hear the burner.
Hopefully next year, we'll have the guts to tackle the festival and see the action close up. I know the boys would love it.
