Grandmas and a hot air balloon - level 2
Two brave grandmas achieved their dream. They took on their first ever hot air balloon ride.
The ladies worried. They thought that they might be too heavy for the basket. One of the women was afraid that her hair might catch fire, but she soon relaxed and enjoyed the view. The grandmothers said that the experience made them feel 10 years younger.
However, the landing wasn’t very smooth.
Difficult words: basket (part of the balloon for people), smooth (comfortable).
