red balloon

On our daily walk with Flynn, we found a red balloon. It had a happy

I saw the video yesterday for the first time, today I found the balloon. 
What a strange coincidence!

Today was really great! Katy, Maia, Sara, Michiko and Stefan came over.
We walked to the farm-shop, spend some time outside with the animals 
and had a lunch together.

Today I went to the presentation of Katrien, Mieke and Renilde their
