It was a cool and sunny morning. The wind was calm and with no storms in the forecast, it made for a perfect morning for a balloon launch. Bear and Dog got up really early to go to a local park for a balloon ride. This was a new adventure for them as they had never been up in a balloon before. They arrived at the park to find out they would be going up in a balloon called 'You Rock'.
Bear and Dog checked everything out as they waited for it to be inflated.
Once the balloon was ready to go, Bear and Dog climbed into the basket. They could hardly wait to take off! They were going to launch first, as the other riders for the 'Stars and Stripes' balloon had not shown up yet.
The balloon began to lift off the ground and away they went.
Bear and Dog were very excited as the balloon went higher and higher. They were amazed at everything they could see from above.
