Grandbaby and Balloons

Grand babies are so much fun. Our son, our daughter in law and Miss Jaelynn flew into Vegas, for a visit with us and the bright lights. What a good time we had. Visiting with each other and see the sights of Vegas. They really enjoyed the laser show on Fremont street. Love that part of Vegas. I believe Jaelynn probably has a crick in her neck from looking up so much.
We did walk the strip and she got to see some characters on the sidewalk. As you can see from this picture she is just not to sure about the blue M & M.

While we were in Vegas, we stayed at Sam's Town. Very nice Rv Park. Everything you need is there at Sams Town. They even had a shuttle to take you to the strip. There is also a free water and laser show inside of the Casino/Motel. Very cool. Of course a great time was had by all. Just look at Miss Jaelynn with Joe. He is called Daddy Joe by our grand children. He calls Jaelynn (Sweet Cheeks). She will just grin.

It turned a little chilly while they were here, but we still had a great time. Hated to see them go but it did help with me missing them. So now it is not so long till we see them again.

Today 11-14-09, in Sierra Viesta they are having the Hot Air Balloon
Festival. I was there at 7:00 am to watch them set up and launch.

While I was watching, I saw a line of people at this one balloon. So being curious I walked over to see what was going on. Well I found out they were giving free rides. So of course I got in line. They were stopping at 9:00. I got to ride at 8:55. Was the last one to get to go up, whew that was lucky. Anyway I got to ride in a balloon, it was awesome. Even if it was tethered.

This evening from 5 til 7, they are haveing the Balloon Glow and Joe and I will be going to watch that. It is not as big as the one in New Mexico but it is my first one and it is still amazing to watch the crews get everything ready and to watch the balloons take flight.
Till next time everyone have fun and be safe.
