Hot Air Ballooning with the Gang

This morning I got up at 4:45AM!!! Ugh. Not my favorite time of day by any means. The thing I do love about it though is that it usually means I get to crew for air balloon. Whenever the weather is nice and the passengers are paying, we fly. I have been doing this for over 10 years now and I love it! Yesterday Jim, the pilot, was needing extra crew bad. So I got on facebook, myspace and my cell and texted away! Thankfully I was able to wrangle a few friends in.

This morning I met up with Logan, Chad, Ebby and Bethany. I stopped at Starbucks to grab them all a little thank you for helping save us. Then we went to work. It was a lot of fun. It's really cool when you get to do this with people you enjoy being around. I enjoy being around these people.

We took off from a little park near the Keizer Baseball Fields and sent off a 97 year old woman and her ?daughter?. Logan and I had to pic her up and lift her in and out of the basket. I don't think she was too excited about that...nor was Logan. Haha.

We then chased them over to the Deaf School and landed in their fields over there.

What a fun morning. I can't do tomorrow, but the four of them are all going back. That is really cool. Logan wants to earn enough ride time for he and his wife to go up.
