Adirondack Balloon Festival – 2012
This weekend we made the trip home to visit my family and to attend the 2012 Adirondack Ballon Festival in Queensbury, NY. As a child the Balloon Fesitval was an annual event to see these monstrous birds of flight, but it has never worked out where I could have taken Diana. Joined by Senior, we woke up before the rooster crows and made our way to the event. Seeing the balloons go off this never gets old, but it was great to see them with people who have never had the pleasure of going. You can almost live the moment through them. Here are a few images from the day…
And we have liftoff.
This balloon was Diana’s favorite.
My loves looking great at 6 AM…

Sometimes it can be really easy to get wrapped up in an event and focus on the details. The Balloon Festival reminded me to keep my eyes wide and remember the bigger picture.
