Balloon Fiesta, Part 2

When you get to the balloon fiesta late (and didn't have time for breakfast), one way to ease the hunger pangs is to hit up the SPAM mobile! They have free samples of freshly-fried spam on little rolls. This was a definite "winner" in R's book (not so much for me--I dunno about the SPAM).

By the time we got there for the "Special Shapes Rodeo," most of them were already up, up, and away... So I quickly fumbled for my camera, fought back my tears of frustration, and snapped off a few of the receeding shapes. They are: Pepsi can, Energizer bunny, Noah's Ark, a NASA space shuttle, a lighthouse, the American flag, and the same turtle as last time--way, way off in the distance.

Okay, so we took this pic on the other day we were at the fiesta, so what? The little bees are too cute to leave out, although it's too bad we couldn't get a good picture of them both facing us!

Here are a bunch more special shapes. Obviously that's a panda bear. Off in the background are also: Scarecrow, daisy, "Forest Friends" (tree trunk w/ animals), a tropical fish, and something big and pink (oh, it's a pig with wings)
Yeah, look at my handsome silly man!
The obvious self-portrait.
The sun was R's favorite. After all the special shapes took off the festivities of "key grab" and "bean-bag toss" started! There were hundreds and hundreds of balloons bumping and racing past us! They'd get as close to the ground as possible to drop bean-bags onto marked targets. It was really awesome!
