Annual Balloon Classic - Colorado Springs

Everyone woke up bright and early (with bed head) this morning to head to Dunkin' Donuts, then to Memorial Park here in Colorado Springs to watch the hot air balloons rise into the air.  
It is so amazing and the balloons are all different shapes, sizes and colors.  We sat on a blanket, ate our donuts and watched the balloons fill with air.  One by one they all started rising!  There is a lake in the middle of the park and the balloons dip their baskets into it...we are planning on heading over to that area of the park tomorrow morning to see it again!  

I was able to take a picture of a few unique is a ladybug:
I also thought this balloon shaped like Noah's Ark was really neat!
