with this behind our house.
(And this was after it had already started to move away.)
It came in as fast as it left because I had been sitting on the back porch with Dora and had only just come inside when we heard a strange noise (the sound of the burner being turned on and off). Stepping back out to see what it was we saw the balloon as big as anything just beyond our back fence. Sister ran upstairs to get a better view and said she could see the people in the basket. How random and fun was that?!
In other news, we had a great visit with some old friends who came for lunch. Thanks Steve and Jen for making the drive to see us!
