Arizona Balloon Classic

Yesterday evening Eric and I drove to Maryvale to the Arizona Balloon Classic.  While I got some decent photos...I'm not so sure I'll be going back anytime soon!  We left the house at 4:30 and Eric was still pulling in to the parking lot at 6:40.  Luckily, he let me get out and walk so I wouldn't miss the balloons.  One other thing that bummed me out was that the sunset was lackluster.  Friday night's was like cotton candy in the sky and tonight's was beautiful as well.  But Saturday, when I had my camera, it was very subtle.  I guess it just wasn't my night.  But hopefully you all enjoy the balloons!
