I've always liked balloons. You, too? Punchy balloons, the ones that float with helium, balloon animals (but not the sound they make!), balloons tied to the mailbox because we're having a party, balloons to announce a new baby, the colorful plethora of balloons in the movie Up... The innocence of balloons is charming, childlike, and (insert other ch- word here. I'm out of ideas). I love that they defy gravity, and especially that people can soar all over in hot air balloons! It absolutely delights me when I spot one way up in a perfectly blue sky.
A few times lately, hot air balloons that have landed in the wide-open fields around our home. Here are two that I spotted as the sun was going down Friday night!
