Weekend Story: 22nd International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta + Clark Museum + Food Trips

The hubby wanted to check out the 22nd International Hot Air Balloon Fest at Omni Aviation and since I haven’t been to such an event, I gave it a go.

Overall, it was a great outdoor experience that let us have fun and adventure while still communing with nature. The place is definitely far from where we live but going there just to try it wasn’t a bad idea at all.
