The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race

Hot Air Balloon Competition and Music Extravaganza!

The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race is Mississippi's most exciting hot air balloon race weekend! Two balloon flights take place each day, weather permitting. Pilots compete as they fly over antebellum homes and the mighty Mississippi River. We took the boys to see all the balloons and they really enjoyed it! The weather was so beautiful that day. The fair grounds had rides and lots of good food coupled with good music. We didn't get to stay long....after all....we had to be back home in time for the LSU game! We definitely plan to go again next year!

We took Luke to the T-Ball field to see how he did with a little instruction and base running. He hit the ball really well...even though we have been pitching to him and not having him hit off a tee lately. So now he knows how to field the ball, run the bases and adjust his feet to either hit towards first or third base. The countdown to baseball season has begun and our little slugger is ready :)
