Fantastic Fourth!

Waiting for the parade to pass by on Main Street.

Charlie's big project was a hot air balloon. He put all the panels together and it was about 6' tall. Getting the hot air into the balloon via the stovepipe.

Ready to lift off. We sent it off once and Alex and Mary drove after it and found it.

Up, up and away. The second launch was better and although they chased it, it took off higher and higher and was gone. Next year we will put our name and phone # on it to see if we can find how far it traveled!

Into the wild blue yonder. Thanks to Jan and Ken for the photos and for Mary and Alex for the chase vehicle.

  1. That looks like so much fun! I've never seen (or heard of) a small scale hot air balloon.
