2011/269: Plano Balloon Festival, Part 2

As I mentioned yesterday, we went to the Plano (TX) Balloon Festival last Saturday. The launch was scheduled for 6pm, but it was a windy day, and things were not looking good.  After we ate dinner, we made our way to the launch field and found a spot to sit and wait…. and wait…. and wait some more. None of the balloons were being set up, and we were beginning to think that this was a waste of time. Of course the kids were bored, just sitting around waiting, and Greg took them back to the vendor area to get some gelato, while I stayed behind so we wouldn’t lose our seats.
Just as they came back, two of the balloons were being spread out on the ground, and filled! Unfortunately they had missed their window for the launch, but at least we still got to see some hot air balloons.

Sara had fun with her camera. Melissa brought hers, too (“because I made her”) but she didn’t take any pictures…. or she did, but deleted them. *sigh* what am I going to do with her?!

Finally starting to get dark…
