Summer Fun!

Glow in the dark bubbles was on our Summer Fun List, so we invited Ares over to see if he wanted to do them with us. We put bubbles into jars, cut open glow sticks, and then added them to the bubbles:

We were VERY disappointed by these. :0(
The glow stick solution made the bubble solution glow for less than a minute.

The bubbles themselves didn't glow at all. :0(
Oh well. Lesson learned. The kids had fun playing with Ares though. :0)
Today, we had our 2nd annual water balloon fight!! This year, everyone filled balloons up and we ended up with around 850 balloons!!!!

This isn't even all of them, there was one more cooler full. We had several towels full of balloons around the park for the kids to run to. They were super excited about all of those balloons.
When it was finally time to have the fight, we lined the kids up on the sidewalk.
On your mark, Get set....


Last year the fight lasted less than 5 minutes. This year, it was closer to 15!
Thank you to everyone who filled balloons up!! I know the kids had a lot of fun!
