    Minnesota Magic Lanterns


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Cindy Schultz's immediate family decided to take a long bike ride this summer. As she shared the idea, others members of her extended family joined in. Altogether 26 members of Cindy's family converged from all parts of the country to share a memorable moment watching paper lanterns go up over in the night sky by a lake in Minnesota.

    Our family converged at my brother's in Eveleth, MN. This year we had 26 adults/cousins along with grandkids, ages 18 months to 7 years. Matt even flew in from Alaska and Jim from Arizona! One of the highlights was lighting paper lanterns and watching them go up over the lake at sunset,. We all spoke in whispers as they went aloft. .
