This past weekend we went to the Plano Balloon Festival with the Parkers.
The sky divers coming down from an airplane were Cobb's favorite part.
Charly enjoyed collecting rocks, running up to our neighbors Angie & Troy, and eating.
Ridge's favorite part was the dragon balloon from "Dragon Tales.
He took a really long time to blow up so Ridge tried to encourage him. Here's a video of his attempt to "wake up" the dragon:
Finally the dragon "woke up." We went down to get a closer look. Ridge said, "Hey dragon! You hungry? You gonna eat dose birds dragon? Hey dragon! You eating da birds?????"
Then on Sunday we were in for a real surprise treat! We saw the balloons flying as we were driving home from Lake Highlands. Cobb & Ridge were in my car with me. Ridge saw the dragon in the sky. "FOLLOW IT MOMMY!!! DERE IT GOES! FOLLOW IT!" So we did.
Here it is about to land:
Of course we parked and ran to see it! Here's Cobb & Ridge next to the giant foot!
And walking on the dragon. . .
Here's Ridge rolling with other kids on the dragon to get the air out. . .
And here's Cobb and Ridge. . .
And it's all rolled up!
And here's the basket. . .
Cobb told me that he wants to go up in a balloon someday. Someday, maybe. . .
