“Humpty Dumpty had a great flight.”

The pink elephant and red fire engine were a hit with the kids…

The Department of Tourism nicknamed their balloon ‘Sunny Boy’, as Filipino a nickname as one can get, hehe.

Sunny Boy did not fly that day and neither did the ‘Space Shuttle’ which had to be deflated after some delay in firing it up.

There was also a LOVELY bunch of giant tulips, which did fly.

Yes. 🙂 (Did you guess right?)

  1. I didn’t guess right but what a lovely bouquet of tulips! I am lovin’ Humpty Dumpty.. 😀 Tita I know not one dang thing what I am doing on Facebook. I am so befuddled. It’s going to take me forevah to figure it out. Isn’t their a manual for us that know nothing? Your pictures are beautiful, you do such fun things! The weather looked a little iffy.

    • Thanks, Ms. Pix! We had mostly grey skies that day but thankfully it didn’t rain (unlike the previous day when the rain dampened the spirits of everyone who went).
      Hmm, Facebook can sometimes be a little tricky as they keep changing things around. I resisted it a long time myself, hehe, because of all the privacy concerns but I think I’ve got the hang of it now. Their Help page has too many sections, I think, but it’s the nearest to a manual that we can get. You may email me if there’s a specific thing you’d like to do and I’ll see if I can help. 🙂

      • Thanks Tita! I might, but I will probably muddle thru. I haven’t put anything on there yet to worry about privacy.. 🙂 But I don’t know how to be a friend or get a friend or follow or on and on……… 😀

        • Oh, for starters you can let your readers know on your blog and provide a link to your facebook profile page (and your new twitter account, too, if you want). I’m sure they’ll soon be clicking on that friend request button. 🙂

    • Humpty Dumpty is even cuter when you look at how small the balloonists are compared to him. 🙂 As for the tulips, wouldn’t that be a great date flight for Jo & Jo? 😉

  2. Tita, how cute is Humpty-Dumpty. My favorite, hands down, although the tulips are just so pretty. Oh my gosh, I love your photos, I can’t get enough. By the way,I have questions about Barcelona for you, will get them to you soon 🙂

    • The cartoon characters really delighted the kids in the crowd, although I heard one boy loudly insist that the pink balloon was not an elephant but a pig. 😀

    • I’m sure it would have looked even lovelier under our usual blue sky but it did its work and brought a lot of colorful ‘flora’ into an otherwise overcast day. 🙂 Thanks, Suze!

  3. Nice shots as usual, Tita! Wish I could watch things like that someday 🙂 Though it would have been nicer if the weather was more ideal. Beautiful, nonetheless 😀
