Yesterday we went to Gardner to see this hot air balloon festival. I wasn't sure what this would be about. It could be a total waste of time or really cool. It was somewhere in the middle. Not super exciting, but cool to see so many hot air balloons at once. Of course, we didn't go into the main part of the crowds and things for the kids to play on. We stayed over on the far side of this pond which turned out great for pictures. It made a nice reflection of the balloons.
