A couple of weekends ago Beth, the boys, and I all made the trek to Centralia to see their annual balloon festival. I had seen an article on it in a magazine and thought that it would be a fun activity to do since the guys are so busy with football in August. It was a great day and we arrived with just enough time to walk around the vendors, find a seat, and start watching the balloons either fly in or get blown up right in front of us. The best part though, was the balloon glow right before we left. The balloons all wait until it gets dark and then they all light up at once. It was pretty neat!
