Photo: A beautiful and balloon-full birthday

Aileen Funk, 18, and her mother, Rosanne Schmitz wade through 2,200 balloons in their living and dining room on Monday. Aileen requested the balloons to celebrate her birthday and Schmitz opened her house to neighbors and friends last weekend to experience the fun. She did this once before, when Aileen turned 14, with 1,500 balloons.
