Water Balloon Wars

2016-03-08 18.12.27

If there is one thing kids love, it's a good ol' fashioned water balloon fight. And after spending hours, off and on, filling up the ones I'd recently purchased, my kids were spoilin' to get outside and have exactly that.

Sophia was surprised to find herself the first target!

Soon, everybody was wet. I had to yell about 50 times not to aim at me, since I was using my completely NON-waterproof Nikon. (Yes, I planned that, instead of taking pictures with my waterproof phone. Heh heh.)

We quickly attracted the attention of one of Jack's friends from the neighborhood, Sumari, and I encouraged him to join us. He hesitated - partly because he didn't want to get wet as he planned his attack, and partly because of shyness, I think.

See him inchin' forward, though?

The sun was starting to set...

...and Sumari had to make a decision. He decided to play! Yay!

Uh-oh, check it out: Dad's getting into the game and raiding the water balloon stash!

Four kids suddenly turned on Rob. Hahaha! And now you see why I brought out the Nikon...

So, that was fun. Shh, don't tell the kids, but I plan to fill up more water balloons tonight and invite more friends over to join in the next one. Maybe I'll play, too. ;)


Thanks for stopping by!
