I just couldn't give up! It kept seeming that just over the NEXT hill, it would land and we would miss it! And by the time I had one hour invested into it, I was mad....I WASN'T going to stop now, I already made it this far. Just for some reference, it would take me about 45 minutes to get there driving the speed limit,
WAY.....I kid you not!!! At one point my sweet nephew said, "Aunt Janelle, you can give up if you want to!!!" HA HA HA HA!! Paisley slept the entire time, bless her heart!
Sometimes it was almost scary to watch, they would get so close to the wires or the trees or a silo....I kept thinking I was going to witness one of those videos you see on tv shows like, "I survived a hot air balloon ride" or something like that!
Well, they FINALLY landed the thing and the folks were grateful....both on the ground AND above the ground. Turns out the "driver" was flying one of his first times and couldn't get it to land! UM! Can you say SCARY?? I will say that the people who booked the ride got a good deal though, these rides are only to last one hour, who knows HOW long these folks were up there....we were with them at least 1 1/2 hours. We watched them put the balloon and basket away while chasing fireflies into the night.
WHAT AN ADVENTURE!!!
I hope I taught the boys a lesson:
never, EVER give up!
