The life and times of Jack, Owen and Ella Crossett

Thursday, March 3, 2011


I'm not exactly sure how this plan came into action except that Aunt Becky was Skyping with Jack last weekend and somehow he ended up telling her he didn't think a balloon would make it from Madison, WI to our house if she let it go. Becky decided to have a bit of fun with the boys so she bought a balloon for each of the kids and took a video of her releasing them up into the air in Madison. She sent the video to my phone and told the boys to check outside every day to see if they made it to Michigan. Becky also sent a duplicate set of balloons with Pez Dispensers and notes attached in the mail to Mommy. Today was the day they arrived and while the kids were busy inside, Daddy put the balloons out in the yard and came in to tell the boys there was something in the yard he wanted them to check out. We took a video of them making the discovery that the balloons made it all the way from Wisconsin to our yard. I wish I had the camera inside because Jack was talking a mile a minute when he came in telling me all about how the balloons made the trip!
