Starting Our Way to Albuquerque

 We left Thursday after work on October 6th to head to New Mexico for the 40th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival! SUPER EXCITED! We were on and off again about the trip up to the very day we were supposed to leave because of bad weather in Albuquerque but we decided to go anyways. As you can see from the picture above, Provo area was getting some bad weather as well!  PLUS earlier in the day there was some snowfall which did not make me happy at all. I am in denial that summer is over in Utah.

 So around Provo area we remembered we had forgotten to grab tickets hanging on our fridge that would get us in to the park each day ($6 savings per person). We got ahold of someone at the festival who said we did need the actual tickets, a photo on our phone would not work :( Bummer. So we drive 40 min back home (it could have been worse) and grabbed them + some other items we'd forgotten, ie; my sunday shoes, the jelly for pbj, some utensils, etc. Then we were on our way again!
Here's a sneak peak of what cool pictures you can expect to see in the next few blog posts. This one was taken on the last day (Sunday morning). Ahhh this whole trip was quite the adventure and definitely something I'll never forget! Stay tuned...
