Here Lately... Featuring Jamboree Game and Hot Air Balloon festival

Life at the Brannen's household has been pretty busy. School, homework, both Matt and I changing jobs, a hard-headed 5 year old that is challenging our every being, a 1.5 year old who is trying to be just like his brother... it honestly never ends. However we are very blessed and trying to find the joy in everything even though at times it is very very hard!! :-)

Had to take a picture of our last minute trip to WalMart because Mommy was craving pigs-n-blanket and Piggly Wiggly was out of what we needed.

Someone has been really interested in the potty lately. He will have a fit later knowing that I took this but I wouldn't be a mom if I didn't!
Even got to enjoy going to the Fayetteville Jamboree game with Hunter's friend Kane and his parents.

Music comes on, the boys HAVE to dance.. ha!
Riding in a hot air balloon is on my bucket list so we decided to take a last minute trip to Callaway Gardens to their hot air balloon festival. We got up at 5 in the morning so that we could be get there early to ride the balloon's since storms were headed our way.

 This is the balloon that we got to ride in after breakfast... We all enjoyed the ride except for Gage. The fire that they have to blow to keep the ballon inflated is very hot and scared Gage. He held onto my shirt for dear life. Hunter however loved it. He smiled the whole time but stopped once anyone showed him attention or asked him any questions. Gotta love my shy boy!

 Hunter was very excited to finally be here and to finally get to see the balloons up close
 Standing in line for the pancake breakfast before we got to ride.

 I would give anything to know what he is thinking when he finally saw the balloons then realized we were about to ride in one.

 They had a few other things to do for the kids, food trucks, car show, dog show and wake surf competition.

Hunter insisted on having his picture taken by each vehicle that he liked best.

I would have given anything to hop in the stroller with Gage and take a nap... waking up at 4:30 to get out the door at 5 was kicking my tail!

Who knew stairs would be sooo much fun. We honestly stood there and let them going up and down the stairs for maybe 15 minutes. Gotta love them :-)
