Panguitch Balloon Rally '09

Took a trip to the metropolis of Panguitch, UT for their annual Balloon Rally with my friend Kimmy. A majority of Kimmy's family is from Panguitch so Keller & I got the Soper hospitality while there!

The Balloon Rally was awesome. Highlights included:

*The coresponding Motorcycle Rally during the weekend. Makes for an interesting & fun crowd! There was actually a Motorcycle Parade on Saturday -- a whole 3 minutes long headed up Main Street followed by 3 minutes headed down Main Street. [All parades in Panguitch make the loop. Hilarious!]

*Street Festival Saturday night where they shut down Main Street and blow up abobut 20 balloons in the cool night air.

*Locals sporting their "I Love Panguitch" t-shirts

*Lots of great people watching filled with bad fake tans & over-peroxided hair.

*Great meals at Grandma & Grandpa Soper's house. Keller has now adopted them.

Fun fun! I love how Keller's mouth is always wide open!

Dana, I am preparing a PPT for counselor days on scholarships. I have in my notes "Dana". I am not sure why!? Any insights? Also, I would love your help with a creative topic rather than "Scholarships". Any ideas? Thanks, Nicole
