So you might wonder what caused this expression on Rowan's face. Here is a clue: it had something to do with the fact that he got pulled out of bed this evening to witness something rather spectacular right here in our back yard. We couldn't believe our eyes.

A hot air balloon landed in our neighbour's yard! Wow! And we got to watch them move it to the road where it was deflated and put into the hot air balloon recovery vehicle. It looks like this weekend promises to be an exciting one!

  1. Wow! a Balloon! it was quite a surprise to see that as I looked out the back door.

  2. I know, hey? Wow! But it looks like we are the only ones that find it fascinating and exciting.

  3. That is soo cool. I once watched a hot air balloon land on a lake in Switzerland, and than they rescued it with boats, I think I was 10 or so, but still remember... Anke
