Florida Trip: Hot air balloon

So for my Birthday (that was on May 11th), my sister-in-law sent me and Philip out on a hot air balloon ride!! I know, right? SO COOL!

We had to be there at 5:45am, which is why I look so tired and icky. But it was so awesome floating in the air 2000ft above the ground. We had a blast!!

Happy belated Birthday :)

A hot air balloon ride looks like a blast!!!! I'm so scared of heights I don't know if I could ever do it. My husband went sky diving a few days before our wedding. He said it was AWESOME! :)

holy wow! I'd be so afraid of being that high! It's such a neat gift though, my god mom flew away from her wedding on one, talk about making a scene.

Was it scary? I don't like flying and I'm kinda afraid of heights but it looks like fun! I'd be so afraid we'd crash!
