Once again I had to work a Memorial Day festival. This year however we had the hot air balloons. I was so fortunate to assist as a chase crew member along with my husband for one of the pilots. It has been 16 years since we've had the opportunity to do this. It's in my blood again. Maybe one day I'll be able to afford to get my pilot's license.
If so, my balloon will look like a quilt!
