Hot Air Balloon Festival

Today we got to attend yet another one of our favourite festivals. Rowan's Gran has been looking forward to this day for quite some time now. We were all very excited. We had to get up really early to see the first balloons come in. It was great. When we left the house, the sun was just starting to peak over the horizon.
The photograph above shows the particularly cute way that Rowan pulls his mouth when he witnesses something new and impressive. These photos are of all of us looking at the approaching balloons.

There was a lot of pointing, smiling, excited squeals and even clapping coming from Rowan as he witnessed these big and colourful flying objects passing over our heads.

After the first session we went back home to rest so that we could return again later in the evening to witness a skydiving team fly in with the biggest American flag I have ever seen.

The absolute highlight of the day, however, was the balloon glow. Here we are all sitting quite patiently waiting for the show. It was quite a long wait and it was already past Rowan's bed time but it was definitely worth the effort. We had a great time.
