Day 151

Water balloons on the sidewalk are always fun. Now, draw pictures with your throws, and you're a pro! My little one was out making and breaking them today. It's 82 degrees and muggy! A little swimming, a little water balloons.. perfect recipe for a 9 yr old. 

She is a sad one as her friends and her family were over yesterday for a "fun" Memorial Day BBQ, and her friend wound up breaking her arm falling off the hammock. Ugh! Fire dept. came, the truck and the ambulance, and put a stop to our otherwise fun evening. Wouldn't you know it, the end to a great day. Poor little one. We were so sad for her. Mom and dad held it together great, her brothers and sister did too, but my youngest was a mess. Good news, though. She's at home and on the mend. We will have to think of some fun things to do with her over the next several weeks.

So sorry to hear about the friends broken arm; darn, that would mess up anyone's party! I do love the water ballon pics though. Ryan picked out a water balloon kit at the pool store the other day, so you've given me a few ideas. Thanks!
