Ballooning above Plano


Chris’ mom got us a ride on a hot air balloon on Friday morning for the Plano Balloon Fest. I was leery of going because of some previous accidents in which I was thrown out of some boats and some really bumpy airplane rides, but the ride was pretty smooth. We didn’t go far or high due to zero wind and I wasn’t that appreciative of the guide bumping the treeline on purpose, but it was fun to see. I definitely wouldn’t do it again but if you don’t have issues with heights I’d would suggest going!

    Very cool! I wanted to go so bad this year, but I didn’t want to get little Ashley out in this heat, especially with the mosquitos. It looks like you had fun! If you are still in Plano, we need to get together! =o)

    You got some great pictures though! And its an experience to remember. I have always been nervous about going on a hot air baloon, but I would like to some day, just to experience it.

    Looks beautiful, but a little scary. :> I feel much more comfortable being strapped into a big seat at that altitude. Great pictures!

    That looks so beautiful! I don’t think I could handle the height, though. 🙂
