Just A Bunch Of Hot Air

31 Jan

My hubby is not known for being the most adventurous of all people.

Sometimes, he’s downright cautious.

He thinks things through.

Doesn’t rush.

Once he really surprised me, though. We were on vacation. Upstate in the mountains. It’s pretty there.

Our normal activity there was hiking or canoeing.

Good, outdoor, vacationing kind of stuff.

Oh yeah, and eating out.

I was going to insert a picture of Hubby here, making his famous Orange Face, but he might not like that. Unasked and all. If he says “yes”, I’ll insert it on another day…

One morning, on vacation, early, he said he had a surprise for me.

We were going on a hot air ballon ride!

He had made all of the arrangements!

Up we went, into the clear blue sky! Here I’m looking down at the road below us.

We went higher and higher. We had a chanpagne toast. Do you see us there? That little round shadow in the middle??

And, here we are reflected in a lake below.

One last shadow shot before desending.

Intrepid Hubby stayed in the basket and we landed, hopped out, and he and Captain bounced around a bit before coming to a standstill.

What an exhilarating experience! And, who knew that Hubby would think of it, and plan it all as a surprise!

I am thankful and blessed that Hubby is my Hubby, and today is our anniversary.
