31 Days: Making Memories with Three

Sorry about the delay in blogging. We have been busy around here. We decided to get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather. Plus, on Friday a trip to Costco was in order. Thus, blogging was put on the back burner because we did not get home until 11 pm. Getting home this late makes for one cranky 5-week-old and two worn out little boys. Good thing we had a great reason to get home at such a crazy hour.

Making memories with three is a little bit tougher than two. We decided to go and see some hot air balloons in Albuquerque. The International Balloon Fiesta is amazing. If you have never been I recommend it. It is a yearly event for our family. Check out this post here.

We decided we wanted to go and because it is such a huge fiesta we elected to go on Friday and Saturday. Heading out on Friday the weather was not the best but I thought it would pass over us. The balloons are extremely sensitive to wind and rain. On Friday the rain hit and the glo was cancelled.



However, we were a little more excited for our chances on Saturday. The weather was sunny. There wasn’t a cloud in sight and then the wind came. A couple of balloons inflated and even started glowing. They turn on their burners and the balloon looks amazing at night. But our excitement was short lived and the wind came.

All was not lost. The best part of the evening was watching the fireworks from the car because the rain moved in. The kids loved it until they realized they would be strapped in their car seat for the next hour and a half. This meant that we had a little screaming match between Little D and Baby G. Both J and I agreed that the kids would probably never remember this year at the fiesta. They would probably forget the time spent in the car. But for us we would always remember the look on their faces when they saw a balloon light up. These memories would be for us. After all sometimes as a parent you know that there will be screaming at the end of a trip and deal with it because the memory of taking your kids to the balloon fiesta is to important too pass up.
