On the morning of the 4th we went to see the hot air balloons at 6am! I've lived here for 5 years now but this was my first time to actually get myself out of bed to go. It was worth it. They played patriotic music and it felt good to be out with the community celebrating our nation's existence and freedom.

balloons being aired up

lovin those pig cheeks

this balloon went up with the flag and we sang the national anthem

all the balloons are ready to go

and they're off!

besides all the patriotic fun, it was also beautiful to see a little bit of the sunrise that morning :)
