2011 Hot Air Balloon Festival (Mommy and Me Monday; MYM & RT)

February 13 at 4:30 in the morning, we headed to Clark Air Base in Pampanga to join in the fun of the 2011 Hot Air Balloon Festival. It was a 2 hour drive from Quezon City. The kids were still sleeping when we carried them to the car. My mom tagged along as well as the 2 nannies.

All had fun. We were able to witness the flight of the 26 giant hot air balloons. There were para-gliders that filled the sky with colors. There were also parachute exhibitions from 9 (?) certified air force men. I guess 5 were Filipinos and the rest were of different nationalities.

We had fun going around booths and exhibits. Leon particularly liked the display of aircraft and the artillery. The field was open to kite flyers, both professional and amateurs. Leon requested us to buy him a kite, which we gladly did.
