What to Do with Leftover Birthday Balloons

Our daughter just turned 16 years old. We surprised her that morning with 16 balloons and 16 roses. It's so hard to believe that she is this age!

She enjoyed the balloons on the stairs for a few days afterwards. Then we decided to send those leftover birthday balloons on a mission.

We attached small stick it notes with a message and also our church name and city.

Next, we sent the balloons on their way.

I wonder how far a balloon can travel?
We thought it would be neat to send someone a message that God cares about them. Who knows? Maybe it will float to someone's home who could use some encouragment. Stranger things have happened.
It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I'll let you know if anyone contacts us.
Have a great week!

  1. I love that. That's how I have my kids send messages to their great grandfather who lives in Heaven :)

  2. Absolutely precious! Your children are blessed to have you for a mom. What a way to celebrate a birthday! :)
