Fun Fall Day

We spent the morning at the Saxony Farmer's Market in Fishers today.  We'd heard there would be a hot air balloon there and since Addison seems fascinated by them we thought she'd be interested in seeing one up close. 

There have been a number of times in the last 6 months or so when she's seen one in the air off in the distance and consistently tells us "that's where I get married."  She then follows up with the same dilemma: "But how we supposed to get up there?"  She usually figures it out (Thank you "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" for teaching her how to solve problems.) and answers "I know, a ladder can help!"

We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the tethered balloon rides were FREE and there was no age or height requirement.  So we signed our waivers and hopped in line.  We had met up with some long-time Gafford family friends, Neil, Carolyn, and Angela Schuch and her dog, Lois Lane.  So we had the luxury of on-the-ground photographers for our big event.

 Addison meeting Laney.

 Our fearless girl loved her ride.  She had absolutely no issue with the height and excitedly waved and called down to Angela with the camera down below.  The noise of the "campfire" on the balloon startled her a little because it was so loud, but she wasn't the least bit afraid.  On our way back down she wanted to stand on her own and look out the "window".

After the balloon ride, Addison got her own balloon from one of the vendors.

And she had to love on Laney some more...

Then she played in the bounce house for a while.

 All in all, it was a fun fall day!
