Hot Air Ballooning in Temecula, CA

Seasonal Sunday:

Happy Sunday zesties!! As we inch closer and closer to summer and gorgeous weather we can’t help but do a little more exploring and adventuring (when we get the chance). For my birthday wayyyy back in November billy bought me a balloon ride in Temecula  ca. This is something I have always wanted to do, especially with my sweetie. Well as my birthday approached apparently the winds did as well so it was unsafe to fly. Months later here we are with some gorgeous weather and spring blossoms, that means it’s time to attempt to fly again!! Unfortunately the only hitch in the plan was that when I woke up at 3am for the sunrise balloon ride my dear hubby was very sick!!! With a quick frantic text to my bestie Tera we were on the road in no time and ready to fly, poor billy was left rest in bed. But if you have met Tera you know she is always up for an adventure and her all time favorite movie is “Up.” Bring on the adventure…..

It was so amazing to see these giant balloons laying idle one moment and then filled with air (with a giant fan!) the next. Then came the flames!! Which might I add felt amazing since it was a chilly am.

Let me be the first to say it was amazing, seriously made the ride at CA adventure weak. We soared over the Orange citrus groves and I wanted to bottle that scent- Gah so fresh!!!

We had a great time being goof balls, taking in the scenery and hearing great stories from our tour guide.
