Hot Air Balloon

Every morning we wake up and can see a couple hot air balloons floating across the Heber Valley. Well on Friday, a hot air balloon was right above our house. We took the kids outside to watch it and to our enjoyment and fun the balloon landed right in our circle.
Those balloons are huge and they sure do cram the people in there. There were 9 people in the basket. We overheard that the balloon itself weighs 650 pounds all rolled up.
The operator was really nice and let the kids play around in the basket. We called our neighbor to have her bring her daughter over to see the balloon too.
Too bad it's so expensive to take a ride in the balloon - the kids would love it!
