Our friends invited us to come camping with them but unfortunately Alfie isn’t back together. They weren’t far away so we went down to see them and watch the balloons go up and John said he would take me up in the balloon if the weather played ball. The kids loved getting so close to the balloons and they all had a sit in the basket which isn’t very big really! The local newspaper was there and a photo similar to this is in it!
This is the balloon I went in….
It was absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! Strangely as I went up into the sky Caitlin and Austin got really upset. I’m not really sure what they thought was happening? So that meant Richard only got one photo of us flying off….
Up in the balloon was fantastic! It was really loud when the burners were on….
…and then so quiet when they were off. The view was amazing….
We even got to see a wedding party who all waved at us. The landing was very funny, you literally make the balloon fall over onto a field which meant John landed on top of me as we were dragged along for a while. It was a completely amazing experience!!!!!!!!!!!! We can’t afford to take up another hobby though so we’ll just have to keep watching them as they fly! After the flight I helped pack the balloon away and we went back to their campsite until the kids got too tired then we went home….
