Balloons Over Anderson
Another fine, family-must-do--Balloons Over Anderson.
Boy, oh boy, these South Carolina events just keep getting better and better!
Olivia had a good time. Her favorite part was riding Thomas the Train around the Fairgrounds!
Note: Thomas the Train consisted of a Craftsman riding lawnmower with a Thomas the Train "body" over the top followed by the riding cars. Ghetto!
Wait! This brings something else to mind involving a riding lawnmower. Can you say ghetto hayride?!
We were able to get up close and personal with a hot air balloon basket.
Olivia was excited to see all the balloons lying deflated on the ground.
There was even a Clemson balloon!
You could even take a quick ride in a tethered balloon, but this chick wasn't going there!
Or there was the option to take a helicopter ride. I was more apt to take the helicopter (although, we didn't) because there's more of a sense of safety when you're relying on a motor instead of just hot air.
This one flew right over our heads which Olivia thought was cool! She loves "copters!"
Enjoy the pics of our outing!
