Every year the town of Erie hosts a hot air balloon festival. We’ve never attended it, but now I’m pretty sure that we don’t have to. We get our own little show right from our house.
When the weather is nice we often have all the doors and windows in our house open.
This particular morning I heard a strange noise outside, so I went to check it out only to find a balloon right over our house. I could hear the hot air blowing into the balloon.
I have never seen hot air balloons up close. I could see the people inside and the baskets are much bigger than I thought they were. I’m pretty scared of heights, so you probably won’t find me in a balloon too soon, but they were so fun to watch.
