Up, Up and Away!

This weekend was quite a busy one for us. Saturday night we went to McCook's annual Balloon Fest. Each year they bring in a bunch of hotair balloons from around the country for 2 days of lifts. They do two runs each day, one too early for us, and the other one at night. We decided to check it out this year and were actually quite disappointed...only one actually took off! Next year will hopefully be better. Carson liked watching them try to get them full of air and it was fun to see how big they really are.

Carson launching the straw out of his caprisun pouch! He almost took out a couple of eyes doing it!

Waiting for one to actually fill

My boys enjoying some bbq

Sunday we were invited to a bonfire with some friends of ours. They always cook the best dutch oven food! Christian gets especially excited when they invite us because they always cook either goat or lamb and this time he was very spoiled and got both of them!
The guys playing a round of Annie Oakley

Watching the guys shoot their guns

playing around with one of the many shotgun shells...not so sanitary...I know!

Travis and Raine playing the ever famous baby game...I throw it down and you pick it up game...he was loving it!

And, just for the record, our long time...well...long for us...pet fish Tutter fish died this weekend. We gave him a proper burial...down the toilet. Carson was sure eager to go and find a new Tutter fish today while we were shopping in Wal-Mart today, but we decided that it would be better to wait until after all the holidays were all over so we don't have to worry about not killing another fish while we are gone.
