Colors Everywhere!

Today was another Mass Ascension at the Balloon Fiesta!  We slept in-- but when we did wake up- we stepped outside and it was a glorious sight! The Balloons we heading our direction today based on the wind currents- so we were in for a Big treat! I have lots of awesome shots from my own backyard!
lovely sights overhead

Isn't this just amazing! 

I had never seen this little character before - but look how cute his  glasses are== they have balloons in the reflection! 
I wish I could have seen the front of this one- but how adorable is this??? 

 Look at how big the basket is on this one-- holds 10 passengers!
This lady actually said Hello to me from the basket- they were super close!!!

This morning's gorgeous Color Show was at my back yard, but tonight we had time to head to the Balloon Field to go see the Balloon Glow.  It is the night event and it is also alot of fun!  We got in there late- so we did not see TONS of balloons doing the glow- but we got a few pix of some awesome ones!! It is alot of fun and the weather could not have been more gorgeous tonight.

Balloon Time

October here in NM is the most amazing gorgeous month!  We have PERFECT weather and the color changes are just so awesome!!  Fall is my all-time favorite time-- and this year's fall is off to  a great start!  This last weekend was the beginning of the Balloon Fiesta- and we have been seeing such awesome sights in the sky.  Today, I just shot a few pix as I was driving to the gym and I decided I needed a quick Digi Layout to show off some beauty!!
#heidiswapp #hkswapp digital goodness!!!

The Colors Paint the sky each day with all the balloons in town for the annual International Fiesta.  The Mass Ascensions on the weekends are full of 700 balloons launching from a field not too far from our home - so we see lots of pretty in the sky all week!
