up, up and away!


Ty, "There is something weird in the sky....it is like a round rainbow floating over the trees around the lake........I can't get Mommy to come see what it is, nooooo, she has to play with her camera!"


Ty, "I think that thing is getting closer!"


As the balloon came past our deck the pilot asked if he could land in our yard and Mommy said, "of course you can!" They headed for the back property. That loud WOOOOOSH sound was scary for us but all the humans went running for their cameras!!


The balloon is going to land near our barn!


Look the basket has landed safely!!


Everyone is getting out of the basket.................


Bye bye balloon....................Dad went to greet them and the pilot gave Dad a bottle of wine from Italy, he said it's a tradition! The pilot thanked Dad for mowing the grass giving them a nice place to land.
Who says living in the country is boring!!!=^Y^=

Holy cod, what an adventure! Wow!!!! We'd have been pretty scared (at least Derry would have been!), but oh yes, the mom would have been running for her camera too.

We hope your beans enjoy that wine! LOL!

Wow! That must be a real treat for all your kitties and the woofie to see something like that virtually in your back yard! It just must be frustrating because it's so hard to catch.

By the way, I LOL'd Thomas on Sunday's LOLSpot to welcome him into the community.
