Balloons, balloons and more balloons

Recently, we've discovered a love of hot air balloons.  Ever since our trip up to Michigan for the annual balloon festival up there, it's all Elisa has been able to talk about.

So when Andrew remembered the festival he went to as a kid near his home, it was a go!  (It had the added side trip of being Grandpa King's birthday so that made it even more special!)

It was a great day, chasing balloons, even after a rather uncertain launch.  Thinking they weren't going to launch, we headed to the store and almost home when suddenly, the sky was filled with balloons and the chase was on.

A dinner of pizza and a trip to see a train and we were exhausted.

In other news....this not so little guy has just gained tooth # 8.

Yes.  8.  He has been a fussy, whiny, clingy, non-eating cranky baby since Sunday.  It has NOT done well for my "task" to work on letting go of intake with him.  The fact that he has basically DROPPED an ENTIRE feed thanks to this tooth has rocketed my stress and anxiety levels...He's halfway to those molars if I'm doing my math right.  UGH.  Let's just get this over with, please?  Teeth, you suck.

Oh.  And how could I forget.  Ice cream.

Can't wait for next year and the start of the balloon festival circuit again.  Will be looking for a lot of the local festivals to visit and hopefully take another trip to Michigan for that one.  Aidan should be able to get on the fun a bit more by then!
