Freedom Weekend Aloft 2007

 Ride Away

Michael and I took Graham to Freedom Weekend Aloft this Friday.  Michael and I were both very hesistant about going.  We were anticipating extremely long lines to get in and not sure really what to expect once we got in.  But, we really wanted Graham to see the balloons.  So, we thought we would give it a shot.  It actually turned out to be a really pleasant experience.

Car Ride

Graham and I took a tethered balloon ride which scared him pretty badly, but he claimed was fun afterwards. (The picture at the top is Graham and I floating away.) His favorite part was this race car ride which jerked him around.  He giggled during every turn.  They had a huge fireworks display which Graham thought was too loud, but he sat through it like a trooper and got one more ride out of the race car for his bravery.  The funniest part of the evening was this band from Pelzer that provided our entertainment during dinner.  The lead singer was in this bright green matching pant suit as were his back up singers.  He positioned himself in the middle of where everyone was walking by and proceeded to accost everyone as they passed making them provide vocals against their will in order to proceed.  It was classic and great comedy for dinner!  As for getting in and out, we ended up parking in the VIP lot because we missed our turn and we were really close, so everything was really painless.  Freedom Weekend Aloft proved to be quite entertaining and we will definetely be back again.
