9.11.10 Water Balloons

As much as Jakob loves water and balloons, when I saw the combination on clearance for .29, I had to buy some to see what he would do. I spent the better part of an hour filling and tying maybe 30 of the 100 balloons, until I couldn't do anymore because my fingers were too sore. When Jakob got up from his nap, we all donned our bathing suits and headed to the backyard. He was interested, but unsure what to do until we showed him to throw them. As soon as he saw one pop on the grass, he started grabbing them two at a time, one in each hand, and hurling them to the ground. Within 5 minutes they were all gone! We spent the next hour blowing bubbles, playing in the sprinkler, and made a "pool" in the green bucket for him to play in.


  1. Oh, bless you for filling and tying 30 of those things! My kids only get about 5 balloons each cuz I can't handle any more than that.

  2. That is freakin hilarious. You should have filmed it!
