i know. I Know. I KNOW. More balloon pictures? Cut me some slack though, I was in need of a fun creative activity.
After seeing Lindsey's balloon shoot last week I immediately started planning my own. Models: my li'l sis Allie and her BFF Bianca. They got here on Saturday night and immediately bought some balloons. But they died. The balloons that is. Not my sister and her friend. We went to Smith's on Sunday to find some more, but out here in Utah most things are closed on Sundays, including the floral/balloon shop inside Smith's. So Bianca batted her beautiful eyes at one of the sales clerks and was able to coax him into getting someone to blow us up some balloons. I knew she wasn't good lookin for nothing!
We met Lindsey at the exact same park she went to and got to gettin.
Combining balloons and jumping - what could be better? I know! If only they were eating cupcakes. Next time.These are the knees of longboarders, slackliners and hikers.We found a shopping cart in the middle of the field and had fun using it as a prop.Below is my favorite shot of the day. If you click on it to enlarge it, you can see the moon in the top left corner. It's the moon, not a smudge, cross my heart.At the end of the shoot they let the balloons go. The pink one didn't go so far... But the rest floated away into oblivian. Overall, it was hot as Hades outside, and none of us escaped without some mosquito bites, but these pictures turned out just the way I envsioned them. Thanks so much Lindsey, you're a peach.
Edited to add more More MORE. I just can't get enough.
I laid upside down on my back and got this one.
Worn out, but still having a good time.
