A perfect end to a wonderful long weekend!

Posted on: July 3, 2011

This evening, after a very busy day at the park, my kids and I went to water the community garden.  Boy, were we in for a treat!  Lo and behold, there were some hot air balloons being set up for flight in Whittier Park, right next to our community garden patch.  Instead of helping me water, the children decided to go check out the hot air balloons. 

Well,  they had a prime seat.  I wish I had my camera…I’m sure it’s a moment in time that they will never forget (and nor will I ;).  They sat as close as they could safely be, right beside the hot air balloon that was slowly being filled and slowly raised up.  The whole process probably took about half an hour (I managed to water and plant a few last minute seeds while this was taking place).   They actually got to see people climb into the basket and wave “aurevoir” to them as the hot air balloon slowly ascended into the sky. 

What a beautiful evening!
