We had such a fun, fallish weekend! My inlaws came in town on Friday and that evening we attended a fundraiser benefiting local children that have aged out of foster care. The event, held at Trump National Golf Course, was gorgeous.
Still, the stories and speakers won out. It’s so powerful when people find a cause they are passionate about and make incredible things happen within it. It really was a fun and inspiring evening!
While we were getting ready, the girls decided they needed to “get fancy” as well. Of course we couldn’t resist a group shot!
The night went late but the next morning still came bright and early because…
#momlife. I love my new coffee cozie.
Coach David and Hailey were so much fun to watch on the field and per usual, Kaitlyn tried to steal the show.
After the game we grabbed Pub subs and headed to the Carolina Balloon Festival!
This is such a fun and well executed festival. I can’t believe how little Kaitlyn looked at last year’s event, but this year, both girls were geared up and ready to play.
First things first, we headed straight for the kid zone which features a variety of inflatables, balloon art, magic shows and more.
We waited in several lines but the girls didn’t mind because they love the inflatables.
We filled the afternoon with checking out the booths, listening to the music, and wandering.
Of course we hit up Hailey’s favorite, walking inside a hot air balloon!
She tells everyone this is her favorite festival of all due solely to this attraction.
She kept telling me it was like being inside a rainbow.
At this point we were trying to decide whether or not to stay since the late afternoon ascension appeared questionable thanks to the windy conditions. We decided to wait it out and filled the time the best way we knew how- snacks and relaxing.
What can I say? I love kettle corn.
We enjoyed the downtime, and waited until the last possible moment, but when they finally called the afternoon fights off at 5:30 pm, we decided it was time to go.
This marks two BalloonFests we’ve attended and have yet to see an ascension- ha. Maybe next year!
What is your favorite local fall festival?
