Balloon Launch

Belle's school every year has a pot luck dinner, and balloon launch to celebrate the new school year. I made lasagna, and two desserts, (the first one flopped so I had to make another!). Belle was very excited to go, Spencer was not. The food was great, and my brownies were so good that I didn't even get one! (my sister Janae's recipe, the best brownies I have ever eaten!!! I had to make them again on Sunday so that I could have some.)

Each class hands out the balloons to their students. Each balloon has a message about if you find this balloon send it back to their school to see how far it went. Well, we will never know how far Belle's balloon would have gone, since she found letting it go far to traumatizing. Here are a few pictures of the event.







Thumb sucking always makes balloon launches much better.


Unfortunately it appears that Rose is picking her nose in this picture. Oh well, won't she appreciate this picture when she is older?


Waiting for the balloon launch, and Belle so unknowing of what is to come.

Belle running away from the balloon launch when she saw everyone let theirs go. Much to emotionally painful to say goodbye.

Going, going and gone! Don't they look so cool.......

Has anyone ever contacted the school about finding a balloon?

You'll have to post the brownie recipe. I think I have a craving.

That's what I thought, that Belle wouldn't want to let go of her balloon. What a fun night!

Your sister's brownie recipe sounds yummy. I think you need to post it too. :)

Well, I want to know how far the booger went from Rose's nose?

Well, to be brutally honest I don't know what happened to the booger...as disturbing as that is.

The brownie recipe is so yummy, from scratch, and way too easy!!! (scary, I could make it all the time.)

I am going to tell Janae to post it on her site, sugar and spice and everything nice.....it is her recipe, and maybe we will get a yummy food photo from her as well. She also gave me a tip to frost the brownies while warm, and then they get a glazed over look. I have walked twice today trying to walk off the two brownies I ate! (I am going to have to give them to neighbors so I don't eat them all)

some serious balloon seperation anxiety going on here....

Melanie said...

I love the baloon launching idea. Do they ever get any response fom it?

I think you should share the brownie recipe with your blogging friends. Since we can't enjoy your baking- the least you could do is share the reipe so that we can make our own ;)

Love the picture of all the balloons! I also love the look on Belle's face in the picture of all 3 kids facing the camera & she looks like she's yelling something. Too funny! I want a brownie!
