saturday, june 30th...

My sister Erica fulfilled one of her dreams today...I guess you could say that she checked an item off her "life list"; which we were all able to take part in as well. So you know that great song from the 80's - 99 red balloons? Well, my little sister had this idea one day, that today, became a reality. She thought it would be fun to get a bunch of people together (our family), blow up 99 red balloons, have everyone dressed in red (hey, didn't we just do this yesterday?), and then have a dance party to Nena's 99 red balloons. We were to release the balloons at the appropriate line in the song...set them free at the break of dawn, 'til one by one, they were gone...but, unfortunately that part of the plan was thwarted, due to my premature, but very accidental, release of my bundle of balloons!
Erica and I had gone to the party store the day before, rented two helium tanks, and bought two big bags of red balloons. We spent a good chunk of the morning getting everything ready, and then we all took a leisurely stroll to the elementary school in my dad's neighborhood, and just let loose. I swear, we were dying laughing most the time...it was hilarious! I still can't think about it without busting up. One thing's for sure, I will never be able to listen to that song without thinking of my sister Erica (she is so funny), and this fun and random memory that my family created together!

I just barely watched that (I couldn't get it to work wherever I was the first time I tried it) and it's so hilarious! I love your family for it!
