hands in the sky.





It was definitely worth waking up way before the sun to go to the Arizona Balloon Classic. Hot air balloons are magical, especially when you're standing in the midst of them as they launch all around.

You know what else is magical? Feeling a little baby inside of you kick and wiggle around.

  1. So SO pretty.

    I can't even imagine what it would be like to have a little bébé squirming around inside. So amazing!

  9. These photos make me want to have a hot air ballooned nursery. If I do that someday can I order some of these prints from you?

    I've always loved hot air balloons. I used to be able to see them far, far away on the horizon from our living window in Seattle. I think I'd be too scared to go in one, though.

    Also, they make me think of Full House. I know that is so weird. Uncle Jessie took Becky in one for Valentine's Day. Haha.

  19. i'm pretty sure that a certain jingle indicates that such balloons are not just magical, but magically delicious.

    grand photos.

  24. Baby kicks are one of a kind.

    I love hot air balloons. We lived close to the area where they held the Freedom Festival balloon launch in Provo. It was always so fun to see the balloons.

  41. Seriously now, can I buy these photos from you? I adore hot air balloons and I grew up down the street from an airport that hosts an air balloon show every summer and they would even land on our lawn from time to time. They're very special to me and you captured them beautifully.

  43. These are beautiful pictures of hot air balloons! I've only been in a hot air balloon once and it was for my birthday quite a few years ago. I've been wanting to do it again, but haven't had the time to research if there are any people in my area that do hot air balloon tours! I liked your little addendum at the bottom of your post as well - it's an interesting feeling to feel a baby kicking you for the inside, but it's also really cool! http://www.balloondepot.com
