Zach's grandma said it best when she told us, "You have a beautiful family. Kinda loud, but a beautiful family." How right she was! And we sure love our loud, crazy, fun, active, silly, loving, chaotic, beautiful family.

Goodbye, Old Blue
Based on my vast knowledge of helium balloons, the average lifespan of your run-of-the-mill, multi-colored, latex, helium-filled balloon is about 2-3 days. Which makes this feat all the more astounding. Last night, we FINALLY said good-bye to the last remaining balloon from Staley's birthday party. Staley's birthday party that was over 2 months ago. 65 days ago, to be exact. Yes, I did pay the extra $ .30 for the high-float (to make the balloons last a little longer), but never did I expect Staley to get so many months of enjoyment. It was a little sad to say good-bye, but I don't think this balloon could complain. He was a birthday party attraction. He was the delight of a little girl. He got played with and talked about multiple times each day. He was not exposed to the elements, stuck away in a corner, or popped before his time. It was a full life, and we were glad to share it with him.
