Sunday Post- Morning

Jakesprinter has a Sunday post, this week it is Morning.

I woke up at 5:15 this morning. The Reno hot air ballon races were today. We got tickets for parking, so we were going to go. I didn’t want to get out of bed. The balloons are supposed to launch at 6:30. They also have a glow show, where the balloons air up in the dark. I didn’t want to be there that early. We got there about 6:15. It was very crowded. You walk out into a field and wait. They air up two balloons and launch them with flags. Then airplanes fly over while they play the national anthom.

Then we waited some more. The balloons didn’t launch. The guy spoke over the loud speakers. “The race has been called off. The wind is too strong, so there will be no balloon race today.” So it was over before it even started. We drove home. That my my Sunday morning.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

The weekly photo challenge is Launch

I was going to go outside with a bucket of water and have my son launch the water out of the bucket. But I thought “What if I can’t catch the water in the air, coming out of the bucket. What kind of mess will it make.” Maybe some other time. I went with these pictures. I took them at the balloon race while the hot air balloons were launching into the air.

Up, up and away. Launched.
