Wow! That's really brave... not sure I'd have the wherewithall to do it. Beautiful photos, especially the one with the mountains!


Happy birthday Penny! What a way to bring in 40! I have a mental list of things I'd like to do before I'm 40 and I'm slowly ticking them off . . .I should write them down and get more organized about it ...but havne't given an inch of thought of how to ring in that special year...i've got time, but I'll have to put my thinking cap on..


Beautiful. And a wee bit scary, too! :)


AT first I thought that photo was a quilt... It would make a good one!


Ooooooooooooo! Brave girl! Glad you came back down to earth though.


Happy Birthday. That is a dream of my husband--he'll be going alone. :o) Fanastic photos.


Wow! What a cool way to celebrate, but you're braver than I am :))) Happy Birthday!!!


Very cool - but don't think I'd be able to do it - have a big fear of heights!!


Penny, you rock! Way to go to L-man for making it so memorable. Happy Birthday! When I grow up, I want to be just like you. :-)


Happy Birthday!!


Hi hun....I did a balloon flight for my 40th! Loved it!
Isn't it an amazing quietness up among the clouds?

Happy Birthday! What a fantastic way to spend the day. The scenery is beautiful. We celebrated my husband's 40th the same way. It was awesome!


Happy Birthday you awesome, brave soul!! What a great way to celebrate your big day.

I turned 40 a few (eep!) years ago and I'm happy to report that things are A-OK so far. Don't really feel any different than I did at 38. I hope your birthday is as wonderful as you are!


sounds like you are ticking one of the old Bucke List! LOL, what a great way to celebrate, thanks for sharing the beautiful pics!


Happy Birthday!! I just turned 39 a couple of weeks ago - good reminder to me to start thinking of something "fabulous" to do next year - after all, ya earned it right?


That's so awesome! Happy Birthday! Looks like you started the 40's off right :)


Well GOOD FOR YOU!!! My friend just bought her mom a balloon ride for her 80th birthday, the weather has not been good enough for them to go up yet. She's really excited. I saw some quilt ideas in that video, lol! How fun is that! Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!!!!!


HOW FUN!!! Great way to bring in your 40th! Happy Birthday :)


Happy birthday, brave girl!
Fabulous pictures...
; )


Happy Birthday! If this was for 40, I can't wait to see what 50 will bring! Your photos are fantastic.


Happy Birthday! I turn 40 in two weeks. I can't say that a hot air balloon was ever on my bucket list. I have ridden in the Goodyear Blimp though. :-)

One thing about L-man comes to mind: He's a good man. This ride falls under the category of the things we do for love.

Hope you keep the celebration going for a long time.


Happy birthday Penny! A hot air balloon ride is the coolest way to celebrate your day! I hope I'm brave enough to ride one on my 40th bday too!

Happiest birthday wishes!!


Oh How Fun!!! Happy Birthday Penny! I've had so much fun catching up on your blog from all the posts you did while I was gone. You've been SO busy! I love the cute little clutch you made and your gorgeous napkins too!


Happy birthday!! Looks like you celebrated in style. I LOVE the photo of the hot air balloon shadow you took!

Happy Birthday!!! I am right behind you.


Happy Birthday! I've always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon (that wasn't tethered). Surely, this will be a birthday you will always remember...if only for the fear written all over L-man's face :)


oh, you're much braver than i. not sure my vertigo would let me up in a balloon.

happy birthday!! i hope you had a great day!


What a view and a cool way to celebrate your birthday. But I wouldn't dare to take a ballon ride.


Very fun birthday gift to yourself! My husband and I did a hot air balloon ride on our honeymoon over Napa Valley. That was pretty cool too. But we had the most random group of people there....long and funny story, but let's just say that we'll never forget our ride!



What fun...and what a gorgeous view...you really live in an amazing part of this country!

I hope you are happy and well!!!

Oh HaP-hAp-HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!! Love that defy gravity thing!!! I think I'd be suckin' air also.


Happy Birthday!


Happy Birthday Penny! WOW! Great photos and what fun!


defying gravity! that's genius. was it scary?
maybe in 3.5 years when i hit the 4.0. i'll take a hot air balloon ride.


My 40th is right around the corner but I am not so sure I will be this bold. Happy Birthday super belated.... :) What a wonderful time and amazing memory to treasure and link with 40!


OK- I know this is an old post, but I have to say... the picture looking down on the river totally made my heart race & my hands sweat. I think I would've been in the bottom of the basket in the fetal position.!
