I spent the weekend enjoying the Ogden Valley Hot air Balloon Festival. I went up with a friend Saturday morning and then went up with the whole family Sunday morning.

Saturday was a spectacular display at 7:30 am with all the balloons going up at once in a fairly small field.

The sun was rising as the balloons inflated and took off.

When we got there on Sunday they were only doing one balloon at a time all morning. But the kids thought it was really neat.

Molly was the one that really pushed to go to the festival. I was happy to make her happy.

About stacey

I am the Mom of two young, rambunctious girls, a curious little boy, and a wee little man who is bursting with joy for life. I just wanted to do something for myself that allowed me to harness the magical moments of being a Mom. (A job that sometimes feels thankless, misunderstood, and considered easy by those that haven't done it.) I wanted to be more positive by looking more closely at the good things that happen every day via photos and my thoughts.
