Up, Up and Away!

wpid-fb_img_1445175350327.jpgOne of my goals was to attend a hot air balloon festival this year. There was a festival in October in a town about 40 miles away. The day I’d planned to attend, balloons were grounded due to conditions being too windy. The picture shown is from a friend who was able to go the second day. I’m going to try to find another festival to attend (it’s still one of my goals!).

So I didn’t think I would get to see a show this year. Much to my surprise, I learned only recently that the event was “back on” for 2015–and the Joint Base San Antonio Air Show was held this past weekend.
