Oops!



I can say oops since I wasn't on the balloon! This is one of the hot air balloons that are always in our area giving rides. We had watched this one seem to have some problems right behind our tree line over an open field. It just could not get up very high. The operator finally got over the trees and then over the houses to make an "emergency" landing on the street behind us.
Of course the kids had to run and check it out. Everyone was fine and the balloon operator was happy to explain how the balloons work to the kids. It seems there was a little too much humidity last night to get things high enough.
