Albuquerque International Balloon Festival- 2005

Barry & I decided to keep the balloons at home this year and at the last minute decided to take a trip to Fiesta as spectators... We have never been to a balloon festival without a balloon and thought it might be fun. It was.

On the flight to Albuquerque.. This is the Limerick Nuclear facility near our business from the air.


Thanks to Mike for giving us tickets to the Special Shape party.

Thursday morning winds weren't much better. Oh yea, then there was rain and no balloons...

Thursday evening Glowdeo.  






Half of my glow pics were eaten by my laptop... Had some great ones too...
Friday morning. People flew with a really low ceiling and it was cold. We finally went to Santa Fe. Thanks to Jonathan, Lara, Chrissy & Nicky for the wonderful tour.  

Nicky & La Ristra!

Wonderful Mary worked on a round balloon this year. Will wonders never cease?!

On the way to Santa Fe... I just wanted to say that.


In front of the Governors' House a vast array of Indian jewelry can be found.

Shopping. We should have brought the dino home.

Kids don't get much cuter than little Nicky.

Hey! Another praying mantis. This one was dining on a LARGE beetle.
