Great Midwest Balloon Fest

The kids and I drove to Kansas City, Missouri on Thursday, to join my in-laws as they went to the first annual Overland Park Great Midwest Balloon Fest.

I’ve wanted to go to a Hot Air Balloon Festival for a LONG time.  I was really excited when my MIL called and invited us.

I thought I would share some of the pictures I took at the festival.

We had such a good time.

Mister was a little bummed that the balloons for the glow did not go up.  He thought they were stuck.

After the glow, we sat in the parking lot for EVER trying to get out.  It literally took an hour to drive one car length.  I think they must have had a larger turn out than expected.

While waiting, I popped in one of the kids CD’s and we sang Ole McDonald and Monkeys on the Bed.

What do you do when stuck waiting after an event like that?

We drove home today.  And aside from Mister getting motion sick and hurling in the car on the way home, it was a FUNomenal time!
