We gathered with all of the balloon enthusiasts to watch the final mass ascension at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. We ate breakfast (corn dogs and coffee) while we waited for the sun to rise over the Sandia Mountains and the festivities to begin.
Baby was bundled up tight and warm as we waited for the balloons to fill with air and lift off.
The colors and beauty of it all was absolutely breathtaking. I was in awe at how fast and smooth the balloons lifted off of the ground side-by-side, some touching as the ascended into the sunshine.
Just like that, they were filling the sky like confetti. I am so happy that we braved the cold early this morning to see such a site. If you ever have the chance to go to the Ballon Fiesta, do!
