ABQ Balloon Fiesta

We snuck away this past weekend to go to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. It was a complete spur of the moment decision which is not something we do very often. I've seen the balloon fiesta dozens of times but I still get excited to see all of the different balloons. Albuquerque is a perfect place to go for a balloon ride because of what they call the "Albuquerque box." Different elevations have currents going different directions so you can go up and travel south for a while then go up a bit higher and return from the direction you came. It is especially neat to watch from the ground because when you look up there are balloons going all different directions.
While we were there we got to see all of the Murphy's for an afternoon.
I was trying to sneak pictures of them in the kitchen but once they caught me they started acting up : )
We also played the silliest game ever invented! You point the camera at yourselves and name some scenario that you have to act out and then you compare your reactions using the picture. It sounds really dumb, and it is, but it's pretty funny too!
I think my dad thought it was a bit childish
We wore ourselves out but it was a great time! Hope all is well! XOXO -Amber
