Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

AutumnautumnBeing as the leaves are pretty green still you might wonder if this is really autumn. Here in the Albuquerque area, the Balloon Fiesta represents that autumn is really here (and has since 1972). I realize taking photos yesterday morning, I could use a telephoto lens. I would have loved to have better close ups. Hopefully I can rent one for next weekend. This reminds me of a picture I have of me and my uncle at one of the fiestas in the 70s. It started with only 13 balloons and used to be in a dirt lot. Now it all starts from the Balloon Fiesta park, with tons of vendors and thousands of people and hundreds of balloons.

Leavesleaves(The) BootbootsMy mom and I went to the Balloon Fiesta Arts and Crafts Festival. I never buy anything at that one, but I like to walk around and see everything. I would have gotten one of these figures in a heart beat had I had money to spare. They were awesome. (I actually took a picture of a ladies boots, but) I couldn’t pass up how funny this was, the thing giving the flamingo the boot. There were ones with two holding a garden gnome and and all sorts of coolness, that weren’t as “violent” as this one.

Hot Beveragehot bevReally it’s just hot water, but no one drank anything in my mom’s new mugs today. So I warmed up some water and had my little man wrap his little hands around the pretty new mug. My mom was going to buy me a bigger one at the festival but I wanted the green they were sold out of. Now seeing how pretty it looks, I should have let her get me the blue. I could have gotten the second one.

GamegameI started off taking pictures at my son’s soccer game. I shared one yesterday. But towards the end of the game these men started showing up for their flag football game. Can’t pass that up.

I am also sharing here:

  1. What a nice hunt. I love Hot Air Balloons. We have a festival here every year but this years was a “bust” so next year they are moving to October so hopefully the balloons will launch. Those leaves are so lovely. I think that mug is really pretty, such a lovely shade of blue. Funny art work and nice capture of the flag football.

    1. Thank you Ida. I am pretty sure our balloon fiesta is always in October. And the ironic thing, the week is always cooler (almost cold sometimes) and there is always a wind issue. Then the next week it is beautiful.

  2. We lived down in Alamogordo for a couple years and wished we could have made it up to the balloon festival. They did have a tiny festival of sorts one year, but nothing like they do in Albuquerque. That mug is beautiful! I love those little monster guys. We have a small one on a stake in our garden, but I’d love a couple more.

    1. Monica, if you know where to find those little monsters online I would love the address. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
