Brussels was full of love today, Valentine's Day, and there were lots of fun events going on in the city. They were giving out Elixirs of Love (basically chocolate milk) and chocolate candy. And at 3:00, the Love Balloon event:
You wrote a love letter on a note, put your address on it, and tied it to a balloon.
What did our love letter say? Poopie loves poopette, of course!
oops........a few let theirs go before 3:00.
un, duex, trois.....me letting go!
There were cheers and excitement from all!
It was an absolutely perfect day for such an event.
The idea is that if you find a card in the street later this week, you are to drop in in the mail so the love letter can get to it's rightful owner.
Our beloved Smurfs (Le Schtroumpfs) were there - did you know they are Belgian?
They were created in 1958 by Belgian cartoonist Peyo.
Even the Love Bugs (old and new) were out with BIG bows.
guessing this little one may have been a bit chilly.
they were so colorful in the steets
A fun day!
and Yes, D was my date, despite not being in any of the photos!
