"I'll send ya a postcard, from Paradise Falls!"

The only thing I could think of to title this post is a quote from one of my Daughter's favorite movie's called Up. Although we didn't quite make it to Paradise Falls, Brant had arranged for us to take a sunrise hot air balloon ride to celebrate 5 years of marriage together. We were supposed to take this ride a month ago on our true anniversary, but it got cancelled because of high winds. (Booooo Salt Lake weather!)  But in the end, it all worked out and it was a wonderful, memorable experience. We ascended over the cute and quaint Heber City. I would live there in a heartbeat!  We had beautiful views of the back of Mt Timpanogas, lakes, trees, and towns. At 2000 feet above the ground, knowing that there was just a basket between me and the atmosphere was a little frightening.  Brant was a nervous wreck that I would drop my camera over the edge.  We made it out alive, and I didn't drop my camera.  I loved that there were a lot of other balloons taking their flight that morning along with us. Here's some pictures from the morning.

Our Shadow

Da Hood

I love this mountain.

Utah truly is so so so beautiful!

Happy Anniversary Hon! Thanks so much for 5 years of laughs, unconditional support, love, backrubs at night, and for giving me the happiest and most memorable experiences of my life.

Awesome pictures! I love the one of the fire going up into the balloon, it looks like a face! Cute picture of you and Branty too. His hair is getting long! Does he use gel? Does he know it's "fashion" to use gel?
