MRK was just getting over an illness and probably didn't feel the greatest. Bentley and Haven entertained themselves with lemons. And no, Savannah does not have glasses. She bought them at the party store today (don't ask).
My mom wanted us to write messages on balloons and send them up to Erik. The kids were all really cute about it. They all wrote their own little messages. I'm not sure what Ryder and Tanner intended to say, but Haven drew a picture of her with her Uncle Erik.
MRK and Ryan chose just to send up plain balloons. Erik probably would have appreciated that! And then we were all ready to let go.
It was fun to watch, but it was over quickly. The wind was blowing and they were carried away (and into the sun). Ryder didn't quite catch the vision of what we were doing and lamented the loss of his balloon for quite a while!
Happy birthday Erik! We love you so much. Enjoy the balloons, the messages and all the hugs and kisses we send as well. XOXOXOXO
