Up, Up, and Away
We've been wanting to go to the hot air balloon festival since last year. Finally, our most awaited trip pushed through thanks to Tonie! :)
Our tickets to the Fiesta :)
We spent the night at Tonie's and left at 3am, had breakfast at Jolibee NLEX, arrived at Clark Field, Pampanga at around 5.30am just in time to see the hot air balloons being prepped for take off! We squeezed our way through the throngs of people to get a closer view of the vibrant balloons.

Give me some fire! :D
We liked the inverted balloon, darth vader’s head, the barn and the giant snowman hot air balloons! Too bad darth vader’s flight was short-lived.. too big? haha! :D Here are our shots of the balloons...

We then went around after all the balloons took off. We had photo shoots at the different exhibits like old jet planes, trucks with heavy artillery, and with men in uniform. haha! :D

Next: lots of waiting in line for the free picture, mini hot air balloon for our souvenir, and a small kite.

Our own kite! ^_^
We then joined the many others who flew kites! Got excited when we were able to fly our own kite :)
Too bad we were not able to ride the hot air balloon but it was a memorable experience for us! 'Til our next adventure! :)
