Water Balloon Fight

We always have a water balloon fight for the kids on the last day of school. We have been doing it for 6 years now and the kids just love it. Teri B and I usually start filling balloons in the morning and don't stop until we run out.

This year we filled up about 750 balloons.  Whew! 

Every year it rains on our party, but the kids don't mind....they are getting wet anyway.  They have a great time pelting each other with balloons.....which can sometimes cause pain and leave a mark.  Right Teri?

Of course, Teri B cannot be trusted with the hose.

I managed to stay dry this year.  Using the baby as a human shield helped.

The kids trickle home starting with the junior high bus then the high school bus, middle school is next and finally Griffin arrives home on the grade school bus.  Because he is last, we try to save a bucket of balloons for him.

After the balloons were all gone and the kids picked up the broken debris, they all jumped in the pool with their clothes on.  It is a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation.
