It's a "biwd!" It's a "pwane!"...

NO!!! It's a "BOOOOON!!!!"...

On Saturday night, Matt and I took Quinn to the 29th Annual Plano Hot Air Balloon Festival!!! We knew he would love it, and we were right. After parking about a mile away from the site, and walking and walking and walking, he was amazed by all of the hot air balloons and the crazy amounts of people! (Seriously, I don't think I've EVER seen that many people in one place at one time!...I read that there were supposed to be 90,000 there this year!!) I, being a HUGE fan of hot air balloons, was just excited as he was, and loved seeing all of the beautiful balloons. Matt, on the other hand, enjoyed the balloons...but really loved the yummy "fair food" and family time! :)
{One of the cutest things that happened over the course of the evening was when we were waiting to cross the street to get to the festival. All of the police men were there directing traffic and people. They kept blowing their whistles and Q would yell "bootball" every time. It was reminding him of a football game! Oh, how everything reminds us of football now-a-days! Say a little prayer for me and my crazy sports fans!}
Loving that freshly squeezed lemonade...yummmmmyyy!!!...

Quinn would say "hot" over and over when they did the "balloon glow" and when they'd light up the torches that didn't have balloons...And, it was hot! We could feel the heat from the fire from where we were sitting!

How fun! That would be so neat to see. Quinn's facial expressions are priceless. He is adorable and looks so grown up with his little spiked hair due. You and your family are way too cute!!

So fun! I still need to go to that thing... It's good to see pics like yours, so I know to bring a blanket, etc. Btw--in the pic of you holding the lemonade for Quinn, you look more like some of those pics of you and Sarah (and Thompson and Molly, etc.) from Cooper! So funny!

(p.s. just a fellow blogger, I "confessed" in your previous post :) Adorable Fam!)

I love that you were able to capture so many of Quinn's facial expressions. He is one handsome little guy!
