Trenton mentioned someone was in the driveway with a trailer so we headed outside. Can you imagine our surprise to see this was the chaser for a hot air balloon. Even better, the balloon was sponsored by our credit union. Trenton went out and helped out the crew. Unfortunately, I was headed out to teach religious education for the evening. Many of the neighborhood had congregated to enjoy the landing and retrieval. The guys were kind enough to take care of our newly planted alfalfa. Trenton said they had it all picked up in just a matter of minutes. The lucky couple that had enjoyed the ride said it was worth the cost. Trenton asked if he could get a ride and the fellow said sure, its just $500. Needless to say, he is still just in the wishing phase.
What a great surprise and fun way to end the day!
