Air Mail




Did you ever do this as a child? Send a note high in the sky and hope that someone somewhere would find it and write back? My Sweets {on his way to work} saw this handwritten note tied to two pink balloons by a blue ribbon and floating over an open field. The next day it deflated and he brought it home. The kid who released the message is at summer camp far far away from here. I will send him an anonymous note letting him know how far his balloons travelled.

I'm so glad Buby's dad took the time to stop and get the balloon, and you'll send a note back. I'm sure the sender will be so excited to get a reply.

Never attched a message or got one, but whenever we get helium balloons we send them to the grandmas in Heaven.

This is awesome! Good thing Buby's Dad looks around when he is driving. The child will be so excited to get a response. we should try this sometime at a playdate.
