An early start is totally worthwhile once a year for the annual Canberra Balloon Festival.
Rolling out of bed at 6am (after confirming the balloons were indeed lifting off that day), our entourage trekked out to the lawns of Old Parliament House for some gorgeous sights. Five of us, plus Mark's parents and my mum.... a whole lot of family for a whole lot of early morning fun!
I love the sight of balloons lifting off in the misty Autumn air, but even more I just relish the pleasure of a little family outing and tradition.

|Not a great shot but this is Darth Vader!|
|Eli bubbling over with excitment at all the balloons!|
|If you ever wondered where Eli gets all his funny faces from....|
