hot air balloon festival

a while ago, parker and i went to the highland village hot air balloon festival. they have balloon races, food vendors, rides for little kids, and music. however, i think we got there a little too early. the races were at 7 am, definitely wasn't going to get there that early. food vendors weren't open when we got there, so we couldn't eat anything. so we were left with walking around the gift vendors and checking out the rides.

on our walk to the event. he was ready to go! (he was actually running, even though it doesn't look like it)

our first ride was the merry-go-round. he was his first time and he loved it.

the funny part was that he kept turning around and saying the the "forseys" were coming to get him :)

it was extremely hot this day and they had kindly put up misting stations.

the festival was right on the lake, so we made a little trek down there.

he also rode on the little train and totally got a kick out of that one.

and the coolest part was the pink firetruck! it was a breast cancer firetruck. you can sign the truck for anyone who has/had breast cancer. it was awesome!

and to prove how hot is was...
those red cheeks, sweaty hair, and a lot of water :)
