Totally Nailed It! The Balloon Wreath.

To celebrate the Hull's birthday week this year, I created a balloon wreath. Since the Hull's birthdays are each 3 days apart, it only seemed fitting to celebrate in style by decorating the door!

I loved this one, found on...wait for it...Pinterest. Of course. ;)  Try as I might though, I could not find any more pictures of this one, so I found a balloon wreath tutorial and trudged forward.

I didn't take any pictures of the process but it was simple to create and as you can see, I totally nailed it!



This donned our door the entire week but the Hull's birthday celebration week has come to end, so the balloon wreath is now put away - until next year! :)

The Grand Canyon by Helicopter!


Greg's carefully constructed birthday surprise this year was 'helicoptering through the Grand Canyon'.  Uh, yeah-not to shabby.  In fact, quite the opposite, incredible!!  There are not enough words, nor are there adequate words to describe the experience.  To say it was epic is really understatement.  To say it was spectacular or awesome or incredible or amazing....well even these words fail to measure this event up.

I created this brief video clip, hoping to capture on film our experience but as with many things of this nature, it's just something you gotta experience for yourself to really appreciate.  But click play anyway! :)

That's it. Words fail me on this one!
