Cemetery Fun!

“Mommy!  MOMMY!  Can we go to that demetery again!??!”  (Julia can’t say starting “s” sounds of words yet.)

Probably one of the strangest requests you hear daily from a 2/3-year-old, isn’t it? (Julia just turned 3 this week! Happy Birthday baby girl!)) But for the past month, every time we pass by the cemetery by our house — which we pass *every* day taking Elena to school — this is what I hear coming from the back seat.

I know I’ve documented the girls having fun, and torturing Grandma, at a cemetery before.  But Julia’s latest obsession has nothing to do with graves.  Instead, it has everything to do with hot air balloons!

Back in November, the week of Veterans Day, I happened to see a banner at the local cemetery advertising a Veterans Memorial Balloon Glow.   I honestly had no clue what a balloon glow was, and googled it.  The pictures I saw looked beautiful, so when the date came, I packed up the girls and headed to the cemetery.

Walking in, in awe.

And it was beautiful.  Patriotic music played while the balloons glowed for us all to sit and admire.

We were able to get close up to the balloons.

And we also enjoyed seeing them from afar.   (and rolling & running down the hill!)

There were actually 8 balloons — 2 others are behind these front 6.  You don’t know how many pictures I took to try and get one with most of the balloons glowing!  I suppose if I had a tripod I would have just let the lens stay open to get them all!

So lesson for everyone:   Remember your local cemetery when you’re looking for some family fun events!  😉  HA!
