Home-made cookies, American Hot Dogs and some balloons lifting of in Masterton

They are beautiful! There is something wonderfully peaceful about hot air balloons. I took Friday afternoon off and took my wife Nicky and my two boys over to Masterton to take a look at these amazing things. There was a bit of a gust (bad news for balloon pilots), but not enough to prevent their flights. I have never seen these so close before and I am a tad disappointed that I did not have my pro cameras with me. My 16mm lense would have been just the ticket!
I clicked these snaps on Nicky's Canon G10.  As they say, the best camera in the world is the one thats with you.

We bought home-made cookies, a burger each,  American Hot Dogs and a cardboard cup of hot chips - great times!
