Today was a beautiful fall day in upstate New York. It was in the 60's and sunny. Around 3:00 this afternoon we were outside doing some yard work and winterizing. My husband noticed the first balloon over our pasture and we soon saw two more. We stopped our work and just relaxed as we watched them slowly float through the sky. We live in an area that is familiar with balloons. Check out the Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival. It is an annual event that is usually held the third week of September.
