After 4 years of trying, we finally were able to go on our Hot Air Balloon ride! For as long as I can remember I have wanted to go on a balloon ride. It seemed like an incredible thing to try, and like something out of a movie, which is always a good thing for me. Adam didn't know this and when we got engaged, he had actually planned to go on one, but the weather didn't cooperate (but it definitely didn't put a damper on the engagement day!) So we have tried several times to reschedule with the rain and wind stopping us each time. Luckily we were able to get it in before we leave for New Hampshire!
A few things that I was surprised by:
-my reaction to actually riding in a wicker basket...I was a bit nervous about that, but it really was the cutest thing.
-How smooth the ride was, you really couldn't feel a thing.
-We got to watch them blow up the balloon, and Adam was able to help.
-That we actually rode on top of the water on a pond!
-That I was so, so excited for the breakfast after, the little babe and I had the munchies. Food is always on the brain!
They needed help when the balloon was landing so Adam got out of the basket and actually was lifted off the ground while helping!
The day we got engaged!
