Weekend Plans

These are the friends that I went down to visit in early July and then they came up to visit in early September.  They graciously invited us to come see the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque and stay with them.

There are many morning and evening activities at the Fiesta. We will be there early for the dawn patrol.

And then there is the odd shaped balloons ascending a bit later

And in the evening there is the Balloon Glow where you see them lit at night.  Fireworks and band performance are also to be enjoyed.

On Friday, Hillary Smith is performing with her group. She is the awesome singer I heard when I visited in July.

#2 Son is going with hubby and I and as he has a girlfriend with whom he spends nearly every day with after school at her home, we thought we would invite her to go with us.  My thinking is there is nothing like a road trip to get to know someone better and so this would be good for us all.


Her family is still thinking on it, but I wrote a plea to her family this past weekend so we shall see.

They don’t really know much about us yet, so it may not happen.

We plan for fun either way.

Love Sally
