This is the third year in a row that I've vlogged my time at the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off and the second time I've done so with my cousin Noah. This was definitely one of the best years yet with many more balloons in special shapes at one time than I've seen in any of the previous 11 years that I've gone.
In the final episode of my series of adventures at the 2017 Lamplighter Guild, I show the closing ceremony and my trip back home, complete with strange noises from the jet engine on my last airplane.
It was really sad to leave all of my new friends and return to normal life... I hope this edit carries across some of how I felt during those two final days. Although sad, this my favorite episode of the series. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it too.

Days 3 and 4 of my trip for the Lamplighter Guild were an absolute blast. Between going to Letchworth State Park for morning worship and hearing Andrew Peterson preform a concert for us, it was an awesome time!

Since my family doesn't celebrate Christmas but we had the day off, this year we decided to go up to the mountains and do some photography while spending time together. We enjoyed some gorgeous views and beautiful snow! We were also in for some unexpected blessings along the way.
On August 16th of this year, I got the chance to attend a One Year Adventure Novel (OYAN) meet up with my sister. While there, we got to meet some new friends and reconnect with some old all while enjoying beautiful Colorado scenery. Afterwords, we went to a bookshop and walked around Old Colorado City.
On July 9th of this year, I got to go to the mountains with some of my family to spend time with friends and to meet some new friends. While there, we played a game, took a nice hike, flew the drone, and I got very sunburned.
This year I had the incredible opportunity to fly in a hot air balloon on Labor Day Weekend for the second year in a row! Last year my dad and I flew in a commercial balloon (I filmed the experience as one of my first vlogs) but this year a friend of mine hooked me up with a couple tickets for my cousin and I to ride in a smaller private balloon. It was a very different experience as it was only the two of us and our pilot and since the basket was so small you could feel every little movement.
After our flight, my family and I headed to Gold Camp Road where we flew the drone and ate a picnic lunch. The next day we headed back to the Labor Day Lift Off to see the balloons inflate.
This year for the last day of the biblical Feast of Unleavened Bread we went down to visit some friends of ours who live several hours south of us. It was a very nice time although the sunburn I got from it wasn't exactly a party. Hope you enjoy the vlog. :)
