Colt turns 10

Saturday we celebrated Colt's 10th birthday.  It's so hard to picture him as a 10 year old.  He will always be 3 to me I guess.  It makes me wonder, will he be 3 when we meet up in heaven?  I can't wait until that day!

We had an amazing day.  Joey and I got the kids up early and headed out.  We went and picked out balloons for his balloon release.  We do it every year.  We buy all his favorite characters....buzz lightyear, mickey mouse, thomas the train, and more, and release them into the sky.  This year Breanna made tags and tied to each string.  Someone actually called us Sunday morning and had already found a balloon in Frankston, TX.  That was very exciting.  I can't wait to see how many we get back!  Most of our family joined us at the cemetery with balloons, and we also had some special friends join us as well. 

After we picked up balloons we took the kids to a pumpkin patch.  Luci loved the pumpkins!  We had the greatest time!

After the balloon release our family and several more friends joined us at the house for dinner and birthday cake.   We watched the Rangers game and yes...it got pretty loud in the house!   The Rangers won and are on their way to the World Series! 

We could not have asked for a better day.  We are so thankful to have such amazing family and friends who are willing to drop what they are doing to celebrate the life of our sweet boy.  Makes me smile to know how loved he was and still is!
