Balloons and Fireworks

7:00:00 AM

One great thing about summer, besides the weather, is that there seems to be so much more to do. At least, for me anyway, I'm definitely a warm weather person and would rather be sweating than freezing any day. One of the activities that I attended last, was held in my hometown. It's a festival surrounded mainly around Ribs and Balloons. It's one of those festivals that I grew up going to, seeing the balloons glow and float over the houses.

The first few days were a bit cool, but that didn't hold some people back from enjoying the time. By the end of the weekend, we had gorgeous weather, which was great!  

Having run of the table, meant that I saw some pretty funny things throughout the night. Including a goat that kept escaping and (my favorite) a couple who was young at heart and wanted to ride the camel.

There are also a ton of food trucks and different vendors that sell ribs for everyone to enjoy. Though I just got some kettle corn this year, every line was super long, which means the food is delicious!

On Saturday, the last day of the fest, my family met me at my Grandparents house, which is just a short walk from the grounds and we watched the fireworks together. It was beautiful weather, and I had so much fun helping out. I definitely have a lot of funny kid stories just from the couple of hours that I spent there! One kid told his dad he wanted to ride a cantaloupe instead of a camel.
