First Annual Water Balloon Fight

The brainchild of Sweetcheeks, our first water balloon fight in honor of her birthday was a huge success. We definitely plan to do this one again. Next time we just want to fill all 200+ balloons ahead of time so we can blast everyone uninterrupted for more filling sessions.

As you can see, the mama did NOT get immunity for the good hair day I'd been having up to this point. Libbyline nailed me in the first round and that was it for the superb-looking coif I'd been sporting : ) Oh well, I want to be fully engaged and who really cares about my hair anyway!

I am slowly learning that playing with my children is the best way to build a relationship with them and letting go of my agenda is so freeing.

Bring on the balloons. This mama is ready!

And you are so right......."I am slowly learning that playing with my children is the best way to build a relationship with them and letting go of my agenda is so freeing." Spending that time together having fun, builds a great foundation for those teenage years. Way to Go! :)

Thanks for posting the pictures.
