Hello everyone and greetings from south Mississippi! Hope all of you had a very happy and safe fourth of July. This year we celebrated the fourth a little differently. Well actually we celebrated on the second of July.
I don't know about you but I tend to keep an internal "bucket list" of places I would like to visit and things I would like to do. I have always enjoyed looking at pictures of the Arizona Balloon Festival and hoped to one day see it in person.
Imagine my surprise when I found out they have a balloon festival every year in Canton, MS! Just an hour and a half from our home! The day was extra special in that we got to enjoy it with five of our youngest grandchildren. What a blessing.
The children just loved these!
Yep! They even had a space shuttle balloon! What fun! This thing was huge!
Hope all of you will forgive my blog laziness. I have been bogged down with some books that have captured my attention of late. I am even reading some fiction! Imagine that! Books have a very calming effect on me and I enjoy reading them so very much.
Have I mentioned it's hot here in Mississippi? I am not complaining though ...nope...not one bit!
(At least not as long as my air conditioner is running anyway)
