Oh, Saturday night... you did me right.
If I could pick just a few of my favorite LITTLE things in life that just make me really HAPPY, I
Would include pretty much everything from the Hot Air Balloon Festival this weekend.
Honestly, the beautiful hot air balloons would be enough alone, but then there were the funnel cakes, lemon shake-ups and mini donuts.
The rides lit up at night, the Hot air balloons doing their light show at night.... all of it.
I'm pretty sure the cinnamon + sugar mini donuts are sent straight from heaven, by the way.

This mama has developed herself a fairly weak stomach in my older age.
It's funny be cause I don't really enjoy the rides all that much but I love to see them.
And really LOVE taking pictures of the rides and the carnival... all of it.
The swings. AHHHH.... as if the swings aren't AWESOME enough...
The swings at night??
The sky was so pretty last night and a beautiful background for the balloon
and the rides both.

I'm tucking these pictures and these memories away, thankful for a hot, sweet night
With my two favorite little people in the world.
There's really nothing better.
Hope you had a happy weekend.
