About 3 weeks ago, we went here:
with our friends, Rachel and Rett. They have season tickets to the rodeo at the fair. Let me tell you, nothing beats a RODEO at a STATE FAIR. Three words: belts, buckles, and Wranglers. Somehow these "underground cowboys" become really "cool" for this two-week event in NM and they strut their stuff like they're not afraid to wear it all year long. Anyway, I love rodeos, always have, maybe it's in my blood since my Mom just so happened to be a barrel-racing rodeo queen in her younger years.
This twitterpated duo likes to ride double, whether or not the stroller calls for it. Oliver and Berlynn at the fair.
Next, we went here:
which is one of our favorite events here in Albuquerque. People come from all over the world for this one-week fiesta and it's the largest of its kind. Usually, we go see the mass ascensions (when all the balloons lift in to the air at once), but this year we opted for the special shapes glowdeo and were we ever glad we did. It was awesome.
On the bus on the way to the Balloon Fiesta Park. Oliver hasn't stopped talking about this bus since that night. I mean, look at his face- could he be any more excited???
The announcer would count down and on "1" all the balloonists would light 'em up. It was REALLY cool.
Oliver obviously didn't think it was as cool as we did- he was so scared when the balloons all lit up.
This was Oliver's favorite balloon- the Wells Fargo horse carriage, even though he was convinced it was Thomas the Train.
Playing with Amelia before bed time. She always gets so giggly before night-nights. Check out that tummy love.
