We have never been able to attend the Forest Park Balloon Race and boy have we been missing out. It seems like every year the Greentree Festival and the Balloon Race were always the same weekend. This year they were not, so we decided to check it out. First of all we were so unprepared. People bring coolers, tents, the works to the Balloon Glow which is Friday night and the races which are Saturday. We went down Friday to see the Balloon Glow and ran into one of my darling students. We ended up sitting with her family and had a blast. Then on Saturday we returned to watch the balloons take off, ride the barrel train (Trey was going to make sure we didn't miss it), and we ran into some old friends. It ended up being a great weekend. Next year we will definitely be more prepared.
