Day 6 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

We have been busy having fun and enjoying ourselves and when it come time to do the blog I am so tired.  LOL  It is a good tired.

So we had some exciting times Wednesday morning because about 20 balloons landed in the field right at the end of where we parked our rv's and some even had to land among us.  A lot of the rv's in this area left on Sunday night, some people have to work, so there was space for the balloons to land.
