One of the very cool things about Albuquerque, is the Balloon Fiesta. It's every year in October.
You can purchase tickets and be at ground zero where they blow up the balloons and take off. They start very early in the morning. I want to go in the future, Right now, I don't really think it's time to get four small kids dressed and then try to keep track of them in the middle of thousands of people. Maybe next year.
We did park on a cliff, early in the morning, wearing our jammies, where several of the balloons land. It's awesome and free!
Addie's there too, just behind some one's head.
It was a little chilly.
All those tiny dots are all the balloons in the distance right after they have taken off. Or lifted or whatever you call it.
