Balloon Fest 2012

This was Baby G's first trip to the Centralia Balloon Fest so BEWARE.....I took a lot of pictures.
 When we first got to the Balloon Fest we walked around to see all the different booths and what they were selling.  Baby G decided to try on one of the hats.
 You can't have a Balloon Fest without balloons.
 And you can't have a Balloon Fest without food.  This is everybody trying to decide what they wanted to eat.  There was so much good food there...unfortunately, it was way overpriced.

 While they decided Baby G enjoyed munching on some goldfish from home.
 And later he enjoyed an apple.
Baby G is sitting in the stroller next to my niece watching a balloon go up.
 Gotta love that toothless grin on my niece.
 Look at all those blonde headed kids.  Can't deny that they are all related.

 Then we got a picture with Nana and Gampa and all the grandkids.
This was our spot while we waited for all the balloons to go up.

 Baby G had just put a huge pile of dirt in Gampa's hand.
 Then the balloons started going up.  Baby G's eyes would get real big when he would see the fire going into the balloon.
 We were sitting right next to where the big lady bug hot air balloon was going up...
 So Baby G got a quick photo while it was airing up.
 Everybody had a blast.  You can see all the balloons going up behind them.
 This was what we were seeing in front of us.
 The lady bug balloon kept getting bigger....
 And bigger. was hard to get a picture without that apple in it.  But it still a good family shot.
 And then we took one more in front of all the balloons.
We stayed until they started the light show and then we all headed out.  We had two preachers with us that needed to get home to finish their sermon for the next day.  But as we were leaving Baby G enjoyed waving to everybody that passed by.
