The Last Water Balloon

My kids and their friends decided to have a water balloon fight with all of the unused balloons that had been lying around my house from all of the birthday parties.  They filled up about thirty of them and hauled them outside.  They had a great time whipping them at each other, getting wet.  Even our German Shepherd, Schultz, got in on the action.

After about twenty minutes of playing, there was only one balloon left.  And my son, Bubba, had it.  "I know who this is for," he announced.  He eyeballed his sister.

He took it in both hands and was about to launch it in her direction, when it suddenly splattered all over him.  He was soaked, because of course, it was the biggest balloon.

Everyone laughed.

"Yeah, Bubba," I said.  "We all knew who that was for.  You!"

  2. I used to play with them in the pool because it increased the chance of escaping and having the balloon survive. We realized later it increased the chance of breaking the "nothing above the shoulders" rule. After, you know, we had all been smacked in the face with water balloons. The one that hit me didn't even explode.

  3. It's a good thing Bubba soaked himself so his sister didn't have to teach him a lesson.

  6. At first I thought he might change it up real quick and hit YOU! But no, getting it all over himself was just the right revenge before the dirty deed was ever even completed. ;)

    1. I think the thought crossed his mind, but since I had the camera in my hands, he figured he'd better not!

    1. If I wasn't so busy taking pictures, I would've thrown a few water balloons myself!

    1. Then it sounds like you should go get yourself a pack of balloons and start filling them up!

  12. Water balloon fights were always SO fun! They're better if everyone has swimsuits on, though!
