Look at this...

How would you like to walk out into your backyard and see this?

After dinner last night I heard this strange sound coming from my backyard. I couldn't believe it when I walked out. I grabbed Ella and brought her outside to stare in wonder as I took these photos. The funny thing is, living in Chandler we see this all the time! I can't tell you how many times we have pulled out of the garage to see the skyline filled with anywhere from 2-20 hot air balloons. Ella LOVES it! But NEVER before have we seen one so close to our house. The photo doesn't do it justice. Before we grabbed the camera the balloon looked like it had just lifted off from my backyard. Here are some more photos below.

What a way to start the New Year!!


  1. Oh wow... I love hot air balloons. I used to love going to the Albuquerque Balloon festival every year. What and excellent picture!

  2. Beautiful, this is so cool. I bet Ella loved it. Congrats on the potty training too.
