As it turned out, I couldn't make it this year (gammy leg). But I'm glad that everybody seemed to have fun and that people actually got their balloon rides this year.

Typically, the daytime high temp is mid-70's, and the low in the 40's.

If it wasn't for some work related issues, this year was supposed to be my time to go. (had vacation time set aside, misses had the time off where she works as well.) Fingers crossed for next year, again.
