Balloon Races

From Dallas, I flew to Denver for work. Friday I came home to Reno and the next day was the Reno Balloon Races. A friend of Eve's lives near the park they launch the balloons and has a breakfast party every year.

We got up at 4 in the morning and over to the park. Before the sun comes up they have a morning glow. They stand up a few balloons to light up. Then set up and launch five balloons at day break. It was a great show.

We went back to the house for breakfast and mimosas. We had a nice time hanging out, and watching dogs chew bones. Then we heard a jet as a balloon floated 40 feet above the house. We walked back down to the park to see 75 balloons floating over the hills. It was a tranquil scene.

Then it was time for a nap.
