Thoughts, Reminders, and Reasons to Brag...


Balloon Landing

Yesterday, as I was pulling into our driveway after work, I saw a hot air balloon that appeared to be a few seconds from crashing into our house or a nearby house. I rushed inside and had Skyler and Renea go out into the backyard, where we witnessed a balloon landing a few feet behind our brick wall. It was within inches to a tall saguaro and a mesquite tree! There were a few other balloons that landed much farther away.

We see them in the air behind our house almost every single day, but this is the first time I saw one land behind us. This reminded me of the time a balloon took off or landed (or both) right behind our house in Michigan in the early 80s.
