Colt's Birthday Celebration

Today we celebrated Colt's birthday by having a balloon release at the cemetary. Last year we did this, but we did it privately with just us and the kids. This year we wanted to surprise Brea by inviting a few of our friends and family. She was a little upset because we were not having a party so it really made her day when she pulled up and saw all the cars at the cemetary. Brea said a prayer, which was one of the most awesome prayers I have ever heard, and I'm so proud of her, and then we released the balloons. It was so amazing. I know Colt was so proud of big sister today. I want to thank everyone for coming out. I know it seemed a little chaotic but having the chaos really takes our minds off of missing Colt so much on his birthday. Thanks you guys! Jolea was very excited to see our family and all of the balloons. She had picked out a Mickey Mouse balloon for Colt, and Luke picked out a Buzz Lightyear. Luke refused to let go of his, but finally as we were leaving he decided to let it go. Again, thank you to all those who came tonight!
Oh yeah! We also took the kids out to the cemetary today and planted a live oak tree behind the bench at Colts gravesite. They had a blast and were very muddy! Watch the video below. Luke was saying when JoJo comes back he is going to take him riding in his new car and show him his new tree! Too sweet!
