"Just stopping by for dinner" the man called from the basket as I opened my front door. I couldn't believe my eyes. About 50 feet from our front door a hot air balloon was coming down. We had only been living in our house for about two weeks and what a house warming gift we were given. It was a very exciting evening for our kids, my husband and I. Not to mention it made for some beautiful pictures. The balloon owners let the kids get in the basket and they also got to help jump and lay on the balloon to get all of the air out. It was an evening that we will never forget at our house.
It took awhile to get the air out of the balloon and loaded into the truck. As the balloon people were working, I wondered why they landed in our yard and not the field across the road. So, I asked the why they landed in our yard. They said that farmers get pretty upset if they land in their fields and they need to have easy access for the truck to pick up the balloon.
