Yesterday morning, Kylie and I had just left for school when we saw a hot air balloon floating overhead. It was quite a site but we were cutting it close as it was. After a few quick pics, we were on our way.
Then, Kylie starts giggling. “What’s so funny back there?” I asked. “That balloon is following us!” She said. I quickly grabbed the phone and snapped a few more pics.
Kylie was delighted. At one point, the balloon was directly over us. “That balloon is on fire, Mommy!” She told me with heartfelt concern.
I offered her a brief explanation of how hot air balloons really work. Relieved, Ky got our of the car. She waved her goodbyes and sure enough, the balloon was floating behind us in the parking lot. I had to take another pic. That was the end of our great chase and the start of another amazing day.
