100. - ride a hot air balloon

"ballooner eclipse" - hahaha
it's been quite awhile since i've written about anything from my 100 things list.  i need to get back into that.  and completing this new experience is a great way to start!  last christmas, justin's mom got us a voucher for a hot air balloon adventure.  since january we've been trying to schedule our ride.  between general scheduling issues, weather, and who know what else, it kept falling through.  but yesterday it finally happened!  the tour was with a company called sunrise balloons.  they were professional but fun and really took care of the details (warm cinnamon rolls, mimosas, good coffee, lots of pics, etc).  i definitely recommend flying with them!  and if you want to see a few other pics i snapped with the phone, check out my instagram (alohaneener)...
