We had the best time at Alabama Jubilee hot air ballon festival on Saturday.  It is one of those events tht has been on my "to do" list for several years.  I have wanted to check it out and see what it was all about.  Saturday was the perfect day for us to go and I am glad we did.  It was just a fun evening.  It was hot but there was a nice breeze.  We laid out blankets and just relaxed.  It was really neat.  We met up with our friends the Carlisles and Hambys so it was great or the kids to play and the adults to visit.  The ballons were awesome!!  It was too hot for them to go up but they did blow them up and do some tendering rides.  The kids loved seeing the ballons.  Just a warning there are a bunch of pictures to come...


 One of the highlights of the evening was when the kids got to go inside of the Cooks Pest Control balloon.  They said it was really neat on the inside and they got to learn about hot air balloons. 
The giant Pepsi can balloon was really neat!
They had a fun play area for the kids. 

 There were balloons everywhere.  It was beautiful. 
 The kids had a blast with their friends!
 We stayed through dusk and got to see the balloons light up.  It was so neat. 

It was a perfectly wonderful evening!  Lots of fun and very relaxing.  I think we will be going back next year
