    I would take my daughter Kimberly. When I found this on WJTL this morning it is her 20th birthday. She is leaving the teenage years behind, turning 20 and has always wanted to go on a hot air balloon since she was very little. This would be an excellent way to remember leaving the teen years and entering adulthood by hot air balloon & seeing God’s beautiful earth by a new perspective!
    Thanks!

    I would take my daughter Alexandra who will soon be turning 18 this fall. She really wanted to go para-sailing at the beach this summer but I told her it was a bit steep for our budget..and I asked her about a hot air balloon ride and she said that would be fun too sometime! She will also be a Senior this year in high school and I think it would be an awesome way to start her school year and to realize her dreams & goals are limitless!

    I would be thrilled to take my son, Chris. We do snow sports together but it is hard to find an exciting summer activity to do together since he is just about to turn 21. His Air National Guard unit will be deploying to Afghanistan in April 2012 so this would be a very fond memory for both of us. Thanks.

    I would take my husband! He has battled health challenges all of his life but refuses to quit, give up or go on disability. We’ve seen the hot air balloons & both said we’d love to do that *some day*. This would be SO neat! :)

    Friday is my husband and my two year wedding anniversary. We got married in Barbados and zip lined to celebrate. It would be incredible to share that evening with him hot air ballooning over Lancaster county. If we don’t win, how do we buy tickets? I just want to be closer to God and give him thanks for such an incredible life.
