Yesterday we headed to New Castle for their annual Balloon Quest festival. It was super hot, but so much fun!
We even met a presidential candidate. He was super weird, swore, and had a big wrench. That's all I really remember from our 1 minute encounter. That, and that I'll never vote for him haha.
Jeff wanted his picture with the guy and his bus:
They had all kinds of little games, food booths, and other festival fun. We even played bingo, but never won. Jeff did many times, though!
We had the best popcorn from the Washington Union Alliance Church (the church the Schindels attend). It was so super delicious! And free!
They launched a ton of hot air balloons. We were front row and it was cool to see all the work that goes into getting the balloon off of the ground.
This is the balloon that Jeff and Steph's church sponsors. The people who run the balloon just sold it so it was their last launch. It was fun, but obviously emotional for them.
Every time that I thought all the balloons were launched, I'd see more getting blown up.
We stopped at Pizza Joe's and I had some BBQ pizza for dinner. It's my favorite and I miss Pizza Joe's being closer!
Good weather, good friends, good food. Great day!
