Hot Air Ballooning over Napa Valley

This past weekend we went hot air ballooning over Napa. It was gorgeous and relaxing (no kid!). Unfortunately for the photographer in me we were the last balloon to go up so we missed the incredible sunrise light. At least we got some great views!

It's really fun to play tourist in your own area. You gain a whole new perspective on the place where you live. If you love to travel and you can't afford to go too far, try something new right in your backyard!
