al-boo-quirky

everyone loves balloons.
and everyone loves the land of enchantment.
and we love the albuquerque international balloon fiesta.
i went several times growing up, russell and i went while we were engaged, and we couldn't wait to get leighton in on the action.

the only drawback is that it starts very early

...and sometimes its cold and you get a red nose...

but that's why you get to snuggle with hobby

...and snuggle (in style) with your baby...

my girlfriend LOVES to clap


leighton happily buckled in with safety moose and pink bear

and, just to finish off the weekend, i stole this picture from my old room in abilene, and i've been smiling at it in my bathroom ever since.
