On the first part of our journey, we visited Battle Creek, Michigan for the annual Balloon Festival.
They are still posting great photos from the event on their facebook page.
I bet you can guess which balloon the kids loved...Sugar Bear, of course. :)
You could hear all the little voices out there calling out, here comes sugar bear! Too cute!
My fave is probably the night time illumination.
Pictured above is the new ankle bracelet I made in the car on the way to Battle Creek so I had something to remember the trip.
I'll be sharing some other fun bead projects from the second leg of our vacation over the next week so...stay tuned.
