Huff n' Puff at the Lake

Fall is definitely in the air lately, and I love it!  I even turned on the heat this morning for a little bit!  Last weekend, we took Ellie to Huff n' Puff at Lake Shawnee.  We went on Friday night, hoping to see the hot air balloons up in the air at sunset time.  Unfortunately, the wind was too strong for all of them to go up, although we did get to see one go up for a "test run."  We stayed out way past Ellie's bedtime so she was pretty much a little zombie the whole night but we had a lot of fun.

Several seconds after that last picture was taken, the whole thing flew down on its side.  It was like a scene out of a movie with a bunch of people underneath the balloon, and everyone screamed and scattered before it touched down!
