The wind carried them pretty fast. This is not all of them, but the ones that I could get in my lense.
The children all tried to chase the balloons. It was really sweet!
Once they realized they couldn't catch them, they just stopped and watched.
This is the last picture I got before they got too far away. They really moved fast because of the wind yesterday afternoon.
I think one of the sweetest things to see was the brothers and sisters of these babies releasing their balloons. The children were so excited to be a part of this. One little fella lost his twin brother and reading his card really touched me. He wrote I miss you on the card. Makes me cry typing it! My Cooper, well I guess you would have to know him to really understand why his card touched me the way it did. Cooper is a very withdrawn person when it comes to showing emotions and affection. On his card, he wrote "I love you, Eli". These losses have more affect of our children than we realize sometimes. I do think the children being a part of OUR celebration was very special. The whole event was just beautiful.
I want to end by saying that I so appreciate every single person who came to be a part of this time of remembrance. You all are very special people.
