    Oh my, you are having my dream come true! I would enjoy a ride in a hot air balloon, too! I am just so sure! That really is a big dream of mine!

    I love that fourth photo! That is the best of the series yet, I think!

    Fun, I love the fourth one. The colors of the ballon against the blue of the sky really pop.
