Balloon Launch

Yesterday was the balloon launch in honor of Christian and Stephanie. I am amazed and touched at the number of people who participated. (read about just some of the launches here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).
My family gathered in my parents' cul de sac with their neighbors (Christian and Stephanie lived with my parents for a while right after they moved here from New Jersey, so all the neighbors know them).
Afterward we gathered as a family at my parents house to eat and visit. I have always loved being around my family, but times like this make me want to spend even more time with them. They are all wonderful and I love them so much. I am truly blessed!P.S. I forgot my camera so I stole these images from my sister who did bring hers. Thanks Liz!
