Lovely Start to a Sunday Morning

Yesterday we got up and found a hot air balloon flying over our house. It was so low that we knew that it was going to land near by. So we grabbed the car keys and the camera and started to follow it.

To our great pleasure it landed in the hay field that we had just mowed and baled the day before.

So we piled out of the car and started to help the crew pull down the balloon. This is an event that has happened here many times. There is a bunch of guys that live south of here that give rides twice a day in the summer and they frequently fly over.

It is a beautiful sight to see one of these things fly over and it is even more impressive to help pull it down.

Afterward out comes the champagne and the toasts begin. Everyone on a hot air balloon crew is a friend even if you have never met them. What a great way to start your day.
