This past weekend was full of all kinds of activities, and it started bright and early for me with the Old Timer's Balloon Fiesta. My brother, Tom, was a Hot Air Balloon enthusiast...he owned one. He always said that one day they would have a Balloon Fiesta here, and by golly, they did. This year it was well attended, and it was a joy to see all the colorful balloons, and see some ballooners I had not seen in a long time. Tom would have loved it! Of course, I took a ton of pictures, but I will spare you, and only show a few.

|Lots of fun...balloons, and a ferris wheel...which was not in operation during the Balloon Fiesta...|
|More fun...A couple of kids wait patiently for their sculpted balloons...|
After that...we had a birthday party to attend...someone just turned 9 years old...
