Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta | Personal Post

I had the chance to go to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta with friends and it was SO MUCH fun! :) Thank you again Laura for inviting us to go! 

These are just a few pictures that I took of our time there. If you've never been, you have to go at least once in your life. It is so beautiful and amazing how these balloons just take off. It almost is surreal!

So here's the story of our time... :)

It poured raining the night before, but luckily it stopped and it allowed for the morning "mass ascension" as they call it, to happen. But, the rain made some nice puddles, which allowed for some great shots! :)

There was so much color at this Fiesta! So many shapes and sizes of balloons too!

And jump the next day and we're on our way home! And we decided to stop at a random picnic table (with the goodies that Laura's Mom hooked us up with) in a very random city called "Holbrook". This city had random dinosaurs everywhere. And little alien things. It was...interesting. :)

Anyways, Ronnie, Laura and Johanna are acting like monkey's! :) haha
