Look What We Did This Morning

Our family cracked the dawn this morning so that we could watch some hot air balloons!  We had so much fun.  I have always wanted to see some fill up and launch and it was super fun for the kiddos.  Especially since we have been studying air in science and we discussed hot air balloons a few weeks ago :)

 This is a pi ball, which stands for pilot's balloon.  Just an ordinary black balloon.  They release it to see which direction to go.  Old fashion and it works!
Testing the flame.

Blowing up the first balloon.
Getting bigger...
Almost up...

And away...

Higher still.
From a distance.

 A few more.
