Rooftop Balloon Fiesta Breakfast

Thomas got an invitation through work from Wilson & Company to attend a rooftop Balloon Fiesta breakfast. He was also able to bring guest, so myself and a friend of ours went along with him. We left Santa Fe around 6:00am and arrived at the breakfast a few minutes before 7:00am. During our drive to Albuquerque it drizzled most of the way and we thought that the balloons probably wouldn't got up. But when we arrived the skies were clear and the Dawn Patrol was up. On the second floor of the building they had breakfast set up. There was a variety of breakfast burritos, fruit, muffins, pastry, french toast and juices & coffee. It was actually a delicious breakfast. We sat and visitied with other poeple and people from the company came around and greeted us. We also got a balloon breakfast pin. After eating we went up to the roof and watched the balloons take off. We loved it! Usually we go to the field and watch the fiesta - this was totally different and incredible. Seeing the balloons from atop a roof gave a whole new perspective. It was an incredible morning. Here are some pictures from the fiesta. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is one of the reasons that I love the Fall in New Mexico.
