As promised, here are pictures from todays hot air balloon ride. And all I can say is, "Wow!". If you ever get the chance to ride in one go for it. You do have to be there early because the best time for flying is right sunrise. The winds are pretty calm and the weather is usually nice. Fyffe is having its UFO festival, which stands for Unforgettable Family Outing. Balloon rides all weekend with lots of other family fun. But, what a ride in the balloon. So smooth you hardly feel like you are moving at all. We went as high as 2,400 feet and rode for just over an hour. What a way to start the day.
