The in-law visit progresses. We went on a balloon ride today, despite some edgy moments before launch when there was lightning. It cleared up enough by dawn to allow flight.
Even when it's cold, the hot air jets in the balloon kept me toasty warm.
The mass ascensions are beyond anything I could have imagined, especially when you see them from a hot air balloon. It was just incredible.
Since we weren't interested in most of the events proper today we went to Old City. I do believe we will be returning there, possibly before erish's wedding.
After driving Emily and Tom to the airport tomorrow we have four days of airport-free bliss before hopping on another plane to the aforementioned wedding.
Gail and Heidi continue to be cute, though I firmly believe that Andy is sadistic when he awakens me by letting the kitten in the room. I never thought I'd consider Gail the calm one.
