Where are all the balloons?

This year we set out again for another year of the ABQ balloon fiesta's glowdeo. Unfortunately it was a little too windy so they couldn't blow up the balloons. We decided to stay since they were still going to do the fireworks show and we didn't have time during the rest of the week to go back. The kids still had fun running around, eating and watching the fireworks. We stuffed our faces with hotdogs, fries, funnel cake and cotton candy. The fireworks are amazing every year, I've never seen a better fireworks show ever! Hopefully next year we'll get to see the balloons up close and personal.
No balloons but we're still happy! Every year they have a Darth Vader balloon. Even though they didn't blow it up, the storm troupers still came out. Blake was so scared of them but Kalli was willing to go right up and take a picture. I give her another year before she's frightened too. Enjoying the yummy food and waiting for those fireworks to start.
In all honesty, we still had such a great time even though there weren't any balloons. I guess it's what you take out of each situation. If you've never been to the ABQ balloon fiesta, you need to go! Plus, you can always stay with us!

Sounds like a fun event, and the food sounds delicious (which in my opinion is the most important part:)) I can't believe how grown up your kids look, they are so cute!

We tried the night glo last year too, and the same thing happened to us, but they honored our tickets for the next morning. So this year we again got up early and went, and loved seeing them all take off. It is such a cool event, and we would have never seen it if we hadn't moved here. I love to find new things!
