You all did so GOOD at being detectives! Most of you guessed what kind of event we went to, and even the city we were in! In fact,we were in Lexington, Virginia, at The Virginia Military Institute. They have a big hot air balloon festival every July Fourth, and this is about the third time we have been.
Anne Marie's mom bought her this wreath of streamers at one of the many vendors. And of course she had to wear it backwards! Then she came to show me.
Unfortunately, all was not well with the balloon crews out in the field. Storms were brewing all around. You cannot go up if there are any storms around, it could result in a disaster. Yet many had paid big bucks for the rides! People had also come from all over, even different states!
In the end, it was decided it was just too dangerous to go up. Anne and I were very sad! BUT they did do some awesome things to make up for it, and I will show you that on my next post!
