Happy 150th Birthday, South Bend!

We had a great weekend helping South Bend celebrate its 150th birthday. Took my mom with us on Saturday for helicopter and hot air balloon rides. She was here 50 years before at the centennial, being honored by the then-mayor for having won a contest to design the new city flag.

Ran into our friends (and fellow photographers) Carrie and Branden and got a nice shot of them taking a selfie in a hot air balloon.
