A Beautiful Start To Saturday

The only way Saturday morning could have been any more spectacular would have been if we were able to take flight in one of these gorgeous balloons! We had never attended the Hudson Elks Balloon Festival before (why I don't know) but on Saturday we woke early (5:15am) to get to the field for the morning ascension. We watched in awe as each balloon was inflated and took flight, waving good-bye and wishing each crew safe travels. We stayed until the very last balloon was out of sight and then decided that we'd return that evening to see the final event of the night: Saturday Evening's Balloon Glow. Could the ending to our day be just as magical as the start? We'd have to wait and see! xo


  1. Wow, what a great way to start the day! Thanks for sharing Shel, just amazing!

  2. They look beautiful! I could never go up in one (I have a severe fear of heights) but I love watching them!
