Well, we went to a hot air balloon festival because I have this crazy fascination with them, but we left before we could see any balloons! We had been there quite a while and it didn’t seem like anything was going to happen anytime soon. We did get to see some stunning views of the countryside. … More Hot Air Balloon Festival…
Our sweet friends took us about thirty minutes away for some MEXICAN FOOD. I’m talkin’ good stuff!

Well, the plane ticket! Patrick and I are BOTH able to leave tomorrow TOGETHER. We are ecstatic. It’s funny because the last few days Patrick would say, “If you go…” and I would correct him and say, “When we go…” the last few days. I was dead set that I would be leaving, too. We’re … More I Got the Golden Ticket!!!
