I lived! I went up in one of the tethered balloons and that was enough for me. Mom went up in one of the un-tethered ones. Better her than me! I don’t really like the idea of being that high up and falling. It was bad enough though, Michael went up with me and he kept making comments about me being clumsy and said I would “probably trip and fall out anyways.”
It was pretty though. The leaves were all bright colors and the sky was bright blue. I didn’t get as good a look as Mom probably did, but what I saw was pretty. Then they had so many balloons inflated and in the sky at once. When it was dark, they had them lined up on the ground and they lit their fires one by one. They looked like pretty light bulbs lined up in a row. I wish Connie or Molly could have come.
