Hot Air Balloons in Florida ~ *clicks heels*

We are way out in the country. 
They launch hot air balloons in the pasture behind our house. 
Literally, our back yard. 
There have been times when the balloons are so low,
they touch the tops of our trees. 
I guess hot air balloon season is upon us. 
I see them out there all the time now.

Have you ever been in a hot air balloon? 
I have not.
Let's go!!
 
The quotes below are by Frank Baum, from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  Of Course!!
 
“If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with.”
 
“Everything you were looking for was right there with you all along.”
 
"Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don't you think?” 
 
Toto did not really care whether he was in Kansas or the Land of Oz so long as Dorothy was with him; but he knew the little girl was unhappy, and that made him unhappy too.”
 
 
“People would rather live in homes regardless of its grayness. There is no place like home.” 
 
 
Blessings to you all.
Choose Joy.

Pooh and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,
ended on a high note last night with Bambi on his back. 
I'm not sure how much more he can take. 
Poor Pooh.
He said he hated me but took it back real fast out of guilt.

Love it! We used to have them land and take off a couple miles from my house when I lived in Kent WA. On warm summer mornings I could hear the 'woosh' of the burners as they were gaining altitude above our home...

Riding in a hot air balloon is definitely on my bucket list.

I would love to ride in one too and to go see the annual festival in Colorado is it?
Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful and colorful hot balloons photos at our party :)
