Mike and I took a picnic lunch to the tree. We brought a pink balloon and some other items to take pictures. Then, we released the balloon. I took video of the balloon release, but the computer is being finicky and not allowing us to view it. After working out the technical difficulties, I'll post it later. Since we only released one, there was no pack for her to break away from, but she soared high and true as usual. The day was bright and clear, but the wind was fairly strong and whisked her away from us. Here are the photos of our trip today.
A friend of mine gave me this figurine. It's very fitting.
Look at her, already trying to get away!
My baby next to the playground. :)
It was so windy, I had to hold the balloon in my hand.
The balloon reads: " Always and Forever. We love you little ninja!"
Mike enjoyed playing with the panoramic feature of the camera.
Someone must have placed these flowers here. Whoever you are, thank you!
It's been a month since she left us, and although my heart is still quite broken, finding purpose and meaning in every day helps me slowly and carefully patch it back together. Today's purpose was to find joy in her life and to remember the joy she brought us. Mission accomplished.
