The first night we went specifically to see the balloon flares, and we were on time. Okay, maybe we were 4 minutes late. BUT THEY STARTED HALF AN HOUR BEFORE THEY WERE SCHEDULED TO DO SO AND WE MISSED THE WHOLE THING!!! **&^%$^@@
So we ended up letting the little boy go wild on the bouncy castles :) and space shuttles and whatnot.
Seeing the little boy have so much fun made me a lot less disappointed ( or miffed ).
The next day, it rained like crazy and it seemed like the whole event would be cancelled, but the rain let up, and we went back again for some "official business". We even managed to catch a few minutes of flaring!
Yuckiest part of the night? Mushy wet muddy fields.
Best part of the night? A Humongaloid Funnel Cake :)
We try to take a "sunset stroll" almost every evening. The vista is simply breathtaking where we stop for a bit. Usually the little boy plays in the dirt and runs around with the dog for a bit before we head back, but it does seem like something is missing if we miss a day.
I'm trying to blog stuff AS/Right after they happen.. there's still a lot of September happenings that have yet to be blogged, but here's what we did today...
Cindy had given us tickets for the Zambia Medical Mission Benefit Luncheon a few days before, and so, instead of Taco Tuesday, we had Rosa's on Wednesday! :) The occasion was also to honor Ray and Star Ferguson, a truly inspiring couple.
The little boy was very well behaved, but 4 year olds get restless, and the little boy was soon on the floor tracing spirals, but keeping very quiet, even after he'd had 2 cookies! :)
