Last week we went to National Balloon Classic, an annual hot-air balloon festival, held in Indianola, Iowa. It was a neat experience watching them take off and land. Maybe next time, we’ll have the opportunity to ride them too.
The green flag is on. Fire-up the balloons.
Almost ready for take off.
More balloons are fired up.

When all the departing balloons from our area took off, we saw other balloons from afar. They are arriving for a landing.
The balloons have landed.
Time to party.
Go fly into the sunset.
