Snowball Fight

It's almost eighty degrees in here in Cincinnati, and my kids just got done having a snowball fight.  What...you don't believe me?  They did - with the flowers of snowball hydrangeas!

I went outside and saw my kids plucking the white pom-pom flowers from the bushes.  "What are you guys doing?" I asked.

"Having a snowball fight!"  they answered.

I watched them chase each other around the yard, throwing flower balls at each other.  It looked like fun, so I grabbed one, too.   Pretty soon we were all pelting petals at each other.

And do you know what?  It didn't hurt!  I think I kind of like spring snowball fights!

    1. Let's see. Pink and blue hydrangea balls for summer, and mum balls for fall. That works.

  5. We have had a hot sunny day, strange how the weather varies and changes people's pastimes for the day.

  7. School-age kids have become the world's youngest i - Phone developers. There are Blu-ray home theater systems which have the capability to stream Netflix, Pandora, You - Tube, or other media applications, Apple TV and Roku XD is technology that basically gives you the option to not have to pay for a Blu-ray player. The speed of our broadband lines also remains unknown for the perfect enjoyment of movies in our tests with an average of clogged lines playback was smooth but the start time of the film was not at all constant, reaching even to few minutes.

  9. Oh, fun! Wish I had been this clever growing up. I've never experienced snow, so flowers would have been a good way to have a snowball fight as a kid, haha.
