Up, up, up and away

27 May

I never really know what to expect when visiting Mike’s family in Michigan. Sometimes, our time is packed with family events, and other times we take surprise day trips to the top of the mitten of Michigan (Mackinac Island, which I’d highly recommend: beautiful, historical, cute shops, delicious fudge, and beautiful vistas). This weekend, we celebrated the holiday weekend with a trip to Michigan’s Little Bavaria – a town called Frankenmuth and their hot air balloon festival and dog bowl. Definitively not my average Saturday night!

    Hot air balloons are really grand aren’t they? Great pics.

      They are amazing, and they are so big up close! I was also amused by their occasional sense of humor (as expressed in their design). Have you ever been in one? I would love to take a ride in one! I was also pretty amazed at how high they went!
