I have always wanted to go to the Great Forest Park [hot air] balloon race's balloon glow. The night before the race they fill the balloons and light them with the gas burners usually meant to float them. Until this year there was always a reason I couldn't go. (Mainly that reason was forgetfulness.)
This year Kev and I found a sitter [aka. my parents] and headed to FoPo.

I think we will go again. Next time I want to pack a picnic dinner so we can see them blow the balloons up. Very cool. I love StL.
