Freedom Weekend Aloft in my neighborhood

We have a big hot air ballon festival right here in our town for Memorial day. Most of the time we don't go to the park to see the balloons because they come to us! This year one landed right next to our pasture. Sunday they were back and one came over so close we talked to them but they landed in our neighbors yard across the street. It was a very exciting weekend!

Rose and Jazz watching the balloons Saturday morning while Daisy,  the goat watches from a "safe" place.
 This  balloon landed in our neighbor's yard right next to our pastures.
 Here is the crew of the ReMax balloon and that's my neighbor in her PJs not wanting to miss anything taking pictures.
 The balloon going down.

 Keeping the balloon tight so that they can roll it up.
 Milking the balloon.
 Sunday they were back and landing everywhere but in our yard!
 There goes another one down two houses from ours.
More are landing around the bend from our house.

Awesome photos. Even though I am afraid of heights, I've always wanted to take a ride in a hot air balloon. Your horses are beautiful too.
