Do Things Different...A 15th Birthday!

How do you celebrate a 15th birthday when in your mind he's forever 3?  This year we're doing things different.  For the first time since he passed away we will not be having a balloon release for Colt's birthday.  Will we have one next year?  I don't know, maybe.  This year his birthday falls on a Saturday so we get to spend the whole entire day as a family.  I personally wanted to head to Disney World but taking off of school and work just wasn't going to work this year.  So, Joey and I decided to surprise the kids with season passes to Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor!  Saturday we'll be headed there for the day!  It's Fright Fest season so that should be interesting!  Some of our tribe, who also love Colt, will be meeting us there to celebrate for the day!

One of the reasons we decided to do something different is because there are just some years we don't feel up to it.  There are times we just want to do our own thing, but feel obligated to entertain others.  This year we're doing our thing.  We want this day to be full of laughs and memories, and this year we're throwing in a little fright and maybe some zombies and clowns!  Who knows!

This year our lives also seem a little different.  Our relationships are different, our tribe is different, our outlook is different, and we are just different. And my priority are the little faces under our roof and their happiness!  If laughter and fun is celebrating Colt's birthday with some zombies, then that's what we'll do!
