Hot Air Balloon Race 2011

I love the 4th of July!  It has always been my MOST favorite holiday and Utah is the PLACE TO BE for the best 4th of July festivities in the nation!  We discovered this shortly after we started our gypsy lifestyles about 10 years ago.  No one celebrates like Utah does!  NO ONE!

The 4th of July celebration lasts all weekend in Utah, and we love it!

One of our favorite traditions is going to the balloon launch.  It is a hot air balloon race and it’s quite exciting to see so many hot air balloons on the ground all being blown up at once!

This year Darth Vadar made an appearance.  The kids had no idea who he was so they were not as impressed as we were.  🙂

The Coca-Cola balloon is the tallest hot air balloon in the world.  I got some pictures of it last year with my Nikon D90.  (I went with my iPhone this year.)

On Sunday morning, we woke up to this balloon in our backyard!  Hannah was in hot air balloon heaven.

It’s not very often that you have a hot air balloon make an emergency landing on your street! 🙂  (Look how cute Paris and Hannah are checking it out.)
