My Labor Day Celebration - AWW




My Labor Day was very interesting indeed. For the very first time I was able to see the Colorado Balloon Classic. Unfortunately it will be my last since they have decided that they will no longer be having the Balloon Classic here in Colorado. So today I want to dedicate my Almost Wordless Wednesday to sharing some of the photos my mommy was able to take while there. None of my photos have been edited.


From start to finish it was an amazing event. We were able to see how everything was done. From the set up of the balloon to the actual lift off and while I'm not afraid of heights, I'm not sure if riding in a hot air balloon will ever be for me. 

So without further ado, here are those photos that I promised.












So how did you enjoy your Labor Day celebration and have you ever been in a hot air balloon?
