Honestly, this looks better than Disney.

As we all ooh and ahh at the photos from Barbara Pierce Bush's Maine wedding, it looks like another famous Texas family enjoyed some time out of the South this weekend.

Instead of heading it to the East Coast, Chip and Joanna Gaines steered their family of seven West to Albuquerque, Chip's hometown before his family relocated to Texas when he was a kid. There, the Gaineses enjoyed the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, a colorful spectacle which we doubt images can adequately do justice.

"Chip has always talked about the @balloonfiesta and how he went as a little kid growing up in Albuquerque. He surprised us all this weekend and we finally got to experience the magic of this special place," wrote Gaines on instagram, alongside a series of posts capturing the event. "Now I get why he still talks about it forty some years later"

Later, Gaines also posted a sweet photo of baby Crew cuddling up with an older sister, as bold balloons lit up the background.

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta was also excited to have the Gaineses' in town, posting a photo of Chip and Jo alongside their Board President, Ty Young.

Chip may be a big proponent of "Farm Life" back in Waco, but he certainly deserves some major brownie points for corralling up the fam to enjoy a fun getaway in the Land of Enchantment.
