Balloon Fiesta

My sister, Amber, dragged us to the balloon fiesta this year. At first I really didn't want to go, but we had a great time. I think this will be something we do every single year. I have lived in New Mexico my whole life and this is the first year I made it to the balloon fiesta. Last night was the special shape balloons and the babies thought it was amazing. They really had a great time.

Look at Brody looking at that cracker :) Brody is such a handful! He is so friendly and he loves everyone, especially grandpas. Every time I turned around he was making friends with an older man (like 70s and 80s), it was really cute but scary at the same time. I am going to have to get a leash because I couldn't ever relax in fear one of my precious angels would disappear.

Look at these balloons, aren't they awesome. They were a bit overwhelming at first, but it was so neat to see them all blown up and glowing. Cheyenne and Brody were completely in awe with it, but Savannah was ready to get the heck out of there. She didn't like the noise of it all.

Brody and Cheyenne just sat there and watched as they crews got their balloons spread out. I also just thought this was a great picture!

I will probably always refer to these 3 as my babies, but they really are growing up. They walked all over that field. Amber and I were so freakin tired when we got home. I think they talk to each other in their secret language and tell each other to go in separate directions. We got home last night and thought we were going to die, but of course we didn't and I even stayed up until midnight playing wii.

Guess who loved this balloon....... Savannah. Yeah, she didn't like being out there much after they balloons where up, but when she saw the monkey she started blowing it kisses.

How cute is this balloon?

Grass hasn't always been a good thing around here, actually its been a problem. But now that they wear shoes and they don't have to feel the grass they love it. Brandon got the backyard cleaned up and little play yard put up in the back, and it is such a life saver. I still don't know what we are going to do when it gets too cold to go outside.

This is what we looked like most of the day. All we did was run after the babies, pick them up, and bring them back to where we were sitting. It was a great day that I will always remember and I am so glad that Auntie Amber asked us to go.
