Remember when Justin and I found a balloon with a tag on one of our hikes in Idylwild?
Well, I finally sent them a letter with photos and a map:
And just a couple of days ago, I got a response!!!
Aren't they so adorable! It made us so happy to hear back from them. And from the sound of it, they were happy to hear from us. They said they let the balloons go on May 14th, 2009 and we were the first and only people to write them back! They ended by saying that they would like to hear from us again... so we have pen-pals now!
Like I mentioned before, this really touched me because I have an aunt who is currently living in a convalescent home recovering from cancer. She is so young, only 42. I hope to share more about her soon...
