UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- An Eyewitness News tradition that happens every Thanksgiving Eve, continued Wednesday night for a 10th straight year.

The children of Eyewitness News reporter Michelle Charlesworth joined her out in the field, reporting on the balloon inflation for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

It's the type of inflation that no one's worried about and everyone loves! Even Michelle's son Jack agreed.

"Hey guys, happy inflation! The only day of the year we're excited to hear that!" Jack said.

The tradition started 29 years ago when Jim Dolan's daughter was 3 years old. She's now 31, with two children of her own.

For the last decade it's been Michelle Charlesworth and her children Isabelle and Jack.

The two special correspondents took a look back at their 10 years of reporting, and also gave a sneak peak at the balloons making an appearance in this year's parade.
