Celebrating his life

We set aside the day to celebrate Kaels life and to remember him. The oldest two boys had school so we sent them since it was short day and got all ready while they were at school. Landon, Tiara and I made a special cake. Then we gathered the things to take to the cemetery. Landon said he wanted to make Kael a LEGO tower so we did just that. He made it as tall as he possibly could so that Kael could see it from heaven so sweet. We spent the day talking about memories we had, how Kael has touched our lives and remembering all the great times. We picked up the kids from school then headed out to the cemetery. We stayed there for a while and talked to Kael, the kids wanted to stay for a while so that's just what we did. Once done there we headed to the store to pick up some balloons to send to heaven. The kids each picked what color they wanted to send and to write on. We headed over to Layne's moms to meet some friends and a few family members so that we could launch the balloons off to heaven. Everyone took time writing Kael messages on there balloons he is so loved and so very much missed. We headed outside to let the balloons go and then headed back in to have the cake we had  made. Once we were done there we headed home to watch the BYU game. It is such a bittersweet game because they played Utah State. The same game we had taken Kael to see the night before he passed away. It was up in Logan just as it was that night we took Kael. We had so  many precious memories made there that night that I am so thankful to have. I am forever grateful that we had the chance to take him to that one football game. Memories that will last a life time. The game got over and the kiddos were tired so we laid them down for bed and then we spent the rest of the night just talking about Kael, where we've been how far we've come and the many things we've learned. I hope he felt our love that day and always. We will always live to honor you baby boy! Thank you for choosing us and letting us be your family. Thank you for your determination, your love and your fight. We love you so much little man to the moon and back! It was a special day celebrating a special little boy!
