Hot Air Balloon Ride

David knew that taking a hot air balloon ride was one of the few things that was on my bucket list. Though heights are not his favorite thing, when a half-off Groupon came across his email last year he decided he had to snatch it up. What we didn't know at the time was that weather conditions have to be absolutely PERFECT in order for the balloon to actually be able to fly. 12 times rescheduling and a full year later, we finally got to fly! It was a truly incredible experience free floating over the St. Croix River and into Wisconsin. In all, the flight lasted a little over an hour before we finally made our landing in a new housing addition north of Hudson. Thank you David for an unforgettable (and very early) morning!

Here you can watch our ascent into the sky and catch a glimpse of the sunrise. Our flight began at 6:00 a.m.

This was once we landed and the air was being let out of the balloon.
