Writing special notes to Grandma
These are some of the sentences we wrote
-Dear Mimi, I miss you so much
-I miss you taking us to the park
-I miss making cookies with you
-Grandpa can't make cookies, he'd probably burn them
-I wish you could come and visit us
-I wish you could sleep in my bed again with me
-I love you Grandma, Happy Birthday!
Emma writing her note
Tying the notes to the balloons
In addition to letting off balloons, the kids also sat around the table and colored their favorite memories they each had with Mimi/Grandma. This was lots of fun. The kids have such wonderful memories and it was so fun to talk about them and listen to what they each had to say. It was truly a special time and a great way to keep the memories fresh and alive.
Hiking the blueberry mountain with Mimi in New Hampshire
Baking cookies with Mimi (don't you love the hair)
Playing grumpy o'l troll at the park.
Kayla's memory was riding the train with Grandma at Black Berry Farm
It was an emotional but memorable day. It was a day to reflect and honor an AMAZING woman. She set the bar so high on how to be an incredible mom, an interactive and loving grandparent and a loyal,kind friend. I miss you Mom so much! I'll do all that I can do to keep your memory alive so these kids will never forget how much you truly loved them. Thank you for always loving me, loving my kids and demonstrating the importance it is to love Jesus and to have a relationship with him. Because of that I know we will spend eternity together. Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Every year Colorado Springs hosts a big balloon festival on Labor Day weekend.
It's called the Balloon Classic.
On Saturday, Sunday and Monday 75 or so balloons take off each morning at 7:00am.
On Saturday and Sunday evening, they have a balloon glow where 10-15
balloons lights up the sky for about an hour.
I love waking up early and seeing the balloons take off, Harley on the other hand
likes to sleep in and attend the balloon glow. He won this year but next year we are going to the balloon launch!
