We were walking by a clothing brand promotion event that was handing out balloons, and nabbed one for Knox. He seemed to find it quite enjoyable.
We like that it is red. One of Mike’s favorite childhood movies is Le Ballon Rouge, about a little boy in post-war France and the adventures he has with a red balloon.
The movie is quaint, simple, and touching. It requires no subtitles. A whimsical little piece.
The little boy’s balloon had some powerful stuff in it. But for Knox, the next day his balloon lay on its side, much diminished. But no matter, Knox still liked to play with it! : )
