Kripalu Mindfulness Outdoor Experience Guide & Life Coach – Get Outside. Go Within.


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Grid.”

Today my daughter, grandson, and I took a trip to the Adirondack Balloon Festival in Queensbury, NY. Although the wind kept the hot air balloons from flying this evening, the owners did try to inflate them for the crowd.

Knowing that this week’s challenge was ‘Grid’ I was mindful of finding a photo for the challenge. It didn’t take long. When the balloons were being inflated I immediately noticed the grids. So here are my choices for this week’s challenge.

I became so involved in taking photos that I lost my daughter and grandson for a while. Eventually we met up at the pizza vendor and actually found a little girl around three years of age who was lost. After calling out “Did anyone lose a child?” while walking through the crowd, a man turned to his wife and asked if she had their daughter. Both looked around and realized their little girl was missing. Her name was the same as the child we had found so they were reunited. It was scary because they had never even noticed she was missing. They had two other children standing near them and one in a carriage. We kept a very close eye on my grandson so there were no repeats.

Fun was had by all even though there were no actual flights. It was perfect weather for a day outside enjoying the sights and family time.

Love and Light!
