Water Balloons

Originally posted: 26 June 2007

The kids had gotten a little quiet that afternoon. Didn't really think to much about it.

Son #2 came and asked if I'd sew something on my sewing machine. What I asked? "Oh just a towel, we're making a sling shot for water balloons." I roll my eyes, and say sure.

A little later, #3 comes and asks if they can go to the Dollar Store. Sure, I say.

A bit later, I head downstairs and outside, to see what they're up to.
When I see this! I should have known a balloon sling shot would entail more than what I was actually picturing in my own head. And yes, they were launching balloons OVER the house! Fun in the Summertime....

I think it's great that they worked together to do this project.

It was the quiet that should have given this away. Over the house - did the neighbors like this and my first thought was who is going to get the water balloon pieces off of the roof. You can tell I have teenagers too! It does seem like good creative fun.

How wonderful to have those memories! (I didn't realize your blog had been around for SO long! ) And I can imagine your surprise when you saw those 'slingshots' LOL There's gotta be a better name for them! Something more military I think! A catapult perhaps???

Where were they with that gizmo when my bratty neighbor was launching balloons at my 3 little hens who were quietly hanging out in their wee little pen?

I love this project! So funny, so very very funny!
