We had a hot air balloon land almost in our back yard. We watched it for a little bit before we realized it was coming down. It landed one mile south of us so we piled in the van and headed in that direction. When we arrived it was down and the pilot was getting ready to let the air out. He told us to join him in helping to put it away. So here are the pictures of our adventure.
It's coming down!!

He offered to show the homeschool group the airport and plane hanger which is just about 3 miles from us.
