Early Morning Adventure!

This morning found me dragging my 2 boys + friend out of bed at about 5:30 AM. That is early for a summer morning around here! It was worth the sleepy eyes because we went to the 1st morning of the Annual Helen Atlantic Hot Air Balloon Race. Unfortunately, due to weather, the actual race start had to be delayed but we still got to see several balloons inflated and a couple taking off.

DS1, Friend & DS2 watch as a balloon begins to inflate.


I don't think I ever fully appreciated how big these balloons actually are!




We were extra proud that Clemson was well represented!Go Tigers!!!




Up, up and away...





Oh, and the best part? This was early morning FREE fun!


DS2 loved getting to climb inside and check out a real balloon basket.

My first thought was that you had taken a ride in one...no way could I do that! They are beautiful though:)

What fun! I went to this once, many years ago. I remember being so impressed with how big the balloons are. Sounds like a fun day. But...where's the dawg balloon?
