Fathers Day Dad! Up, Up and Away

My Dad the Balloon Pilot...
(This is a pretty old pic.. But is shows him on the job
I will dig up a few pictures of his Balloons and post later)

When I way the stamp set "Up, Up and Away"(verve stamps) I had to have it! This was our life growing up. We were so blessed to travel all over the U.S and Canada for Balloon Rallies. My little sister took her first steps on a balloon trip in Oregon. We had the coolest 70's Van when we were kids.. We had a t.v., Fold out couch, built in mobil phone and a fridge.. When you are a balloonist you have to get up really early.. So we could take a little more time getting moving in the morning.

Happy Fathers Day DAD!
