I know this is a bit childish but I'm SO excited!

When I was a child we used to let hellium balloons go with messages on quite often and I NEVER recieved one back.

On Saturday it was my nephews 18th Birthday party and I let a balloon go with a message for the children.

I got a letter this morning - It was found in Austria up the Alps!

I was jumping for joy - The children couldn't care less LOL.

Michelle ~ I put a message on it with our address and I got a letter back. It's written on hotel paper it says:

Dear Sashka & Emy,

We found your balloon high in the Alps above Alpback this afternoon, when we made a hike. How long ago and what place did you let it fly? Are you having Summer holidays in Austria, like we? (oh how I WISH lol)

With love from
Ronald & Trudy - from the Netherlands.

I'm going to scrapbook it - Everybody thinks I've lost it LOL - I'm STILL excited!

We let a balloon go once and it got stuck in a tree while we were still watching it LOL.

Everybody said this one wasn't lifting properly and it wouldn't go far :( - Austria!!!!!!! :D

I think its wonderful. Children just don't know how to appreciate fun things like us grown ups do. I think its super you got a response.
