The letter H was a fun one to go looking for and what did I find?
Hot Air Balloons!
I love hot air balloons (check out the unit study we did). They remind me of my childhood. I grew up in NM and the International Balloon Fiesta happened every year in Albuquerque. But even better was the fact that we could see them just about every weekend we visited my grandparents in Albuquerque, rising slow and gently over the city, while we drove to Sunday morning church services. They always seemed so close that you could just reach out and touch them. Of course, they weren’t. The balloons stood out so pretty against the blue skies of northern NM. It is a treasured memory from my childhood.
So, when I found that Texas had a hot air balloon festival, I just knew it had to go on my bucket list. The Best of Texas Hot Air Balloon Festival happens in Austin in the springtime. This year has already passed but maybe next spring? They do the balloon ascension in the morning and a balloon glow at sunset. They offer rides and have lots of vendors and such. Really, I don’t care one bit about the vendors and food trucks and those sorts of thing. But the balloons? Those I would like to see.
So H = Hot Air Balloons for the Texas Bucket List this week.
