No, I'm not talking about the one in your body...or anything that has to do with school spirit, especially BSU school spirit. This is the time of year J and I secretly cringe about. All the BSU talk and the "we" talk gets to us. ("We won the game!" Really? YOU helped win the game??) Anyway, we aren't really that cynical, but we're happy when football season ends.
I'm talking about The Spirit of Boise. I informed J that now it is a tradition to wake up early and go see the hot air balloons take off from Ann Morrison Park and he is always nice enough to indulge me. I remember seeing them as a kid, and my mom even let us get doughnuts to eat before school. I don't have very many memories but that is one of them and it always makes me smile. This year Rico fell in love with the balloons. It was so much fun to see him excited and wave at all the people he couldn't see in the balloons while saying quietly "Hi people." A couple of them flew right over our heads and that was pretty exciting. This is one of the few traditions we have started as a family. What are some of yours??
