The Balloon Glow

Last night we went to the Kentucky Derby Festival Balloon Glow. A wonderful and very generous friend of ours agreed to stay at home with the sleeping Lorelei so we could just take Julianne to this event. We didn't tell her where we were going, just that we had a surprise for her. She loved the surprise and we all had a great time watching the balloons inflate and light up. When all the balloons were up and we were able to go see them up close, we asked Julianne which one she wanted to go see. She said that she wanted to see the basketball. There were no basketball balloons, but soon we figured out that she didn't know her types of balls very well and wanted to see the soccer ball balloon. It was, by far, her favorite balloon.We didn't get home until about 10:40 p.m. and Julianne was so excited from the evening that she didn't actually go to sleep until about 11:30.
