this little life.






saturday morning we awoke to the sounds of the flames in two hot air balloons above our little duplex.
we stared at them a bit from the bed (pic #1), then decided to chase them down and see how they land.
we ended up just a couple miles away and got to see all the excitement.
it's quite the operation.
a rope gets thrown from the basket to a person on the ground who helps ease it down.
the passengers hop out, then the balloon gets deflated with the help of at least 6 workers, pulling and gathering and tying.
the balloons are one thing we'll certainly miss, should we move from here.
