Balloon Festival

The weekend after Labor Day, Gracie and I went to Sussex for the annual Balloon Festival. It was a beautiful day; Todd stayed back to play golf at the country club because he hasn't played as much as he would have liked this season given the wet, chilly summer weather and his work schedule. We certainly missed having him with us but were glad he got to something he really enjoys!

We met Ingrid, Andrew, and Maaike (pronounced Micah) for a fun afternoon. Ingrid and I really enjoyed people watching! Wow, ohh wow....where do some of these people come from? We, of course, felt so much better about ourselves after looking around (which I know is not very nice, but come on, it's so true)!

Oh the make shift fair rides...are these things actually safe after they been put up and taken down from town to town?

I'm sorry I "forgot" to take some pictures of some of the "fair" people and attendees (you should actually be thanking me).
