Provo Freedom Fest Balloon Festival

I LOVE hot air balloons!!! I also really love my sleep time. So I surprised even myself when I decided to wake up at 5:45 in the morning today to go see the balloons in Provo. I am so glad I did - it was such a fun morning!When we drove up to the park with the Balloons Brandon was thrilled and could not get me to go fast enough to see them.We loved the smokey bear balloon and Darth Vader balloon, but our favorite was the piggy bank balloon.The Coke bottle balloon was amazing - the tallest in the world at 187 feet, I just wish it would have gotten off the ground.Love these pictures of Brandon and Grant!Really love this one of the boys!We had to go visit the fire engine, and ambulance after the balloon show :)When we left the balloons, Brandon was upset and said he wanted to go do more fun stuff - I didn't have anything else planned, but then I thought of Bridal Veil Falls, it was the perfect way to end the day. It was a bit cold at first, but we got to watch the sun rise over the mountain and then it was fine.We found a great rock pile and gathered rocks into the stroller - then we had a great time throwing them into the pool of water at the bottom of the waterfall. We filled the stroller at least five times before the boys had had enough. :)Grants first time throwing a rock into water - He LOVED it - the giggles were so worth it!Brandon kept finding bigger and bigger rocks to throw in - I love boys!!!The river and surrounding were beautiful - a bit scary because of the high water - but amazing just the same.To think that this is just 20 minutes from where I live - I am so lucky!
