When Jeremy saw the
birthday decorations yesterday morning for Mummy's birthday,
was concerned because there were no "bangaloons".
He was, as always,
correct, so Mummy & Daddy quickly blew up four blue balloons.
Little did Jeremy know
that we would be celebrating Mummy's birthday with Giant Bangaloons!!!
In the late afternoon we
drove out to Snowmass for the evening festivities at the Snowmass
Balloon Festival! There was a bouncy castle for us to play in (one
of our most favorite things)...
And a bluegrass played
music for us to dance to...
We ate hamburgers & hot
dogs with funny names (bratwurst)...
and we played Very Silly
And then the Most Amazing
Thing happened. Giant hot air bangaloons began to appear in the
first one and then
another. The acres of fabric which were spread out across the grass
with air and then rose up
high into the sky!
Giant fires lit up the
inside of the bangaloons.
Alex was worried about
what the fires were for, but when Daddy explained,
Alex understood and was
There were giant
bangaloons everywhere we looked, filling the night sky.
It was so beautiful!
When we drove home, long
after dark, we were very tired but very excited.
The most amazing moon
shinning down on the end of Mummy's birthday.
What a special day!
Hooray for birthdays!
Hooray for our Mummy!
