Water Balloons!



Our ward part was Saturday and as YW President, I was asked to have the YW & YM bring 150 water balloons to the party.  Well, as things go, Friday night about 8:30, Matt and I went out to buy water balloons.  We got back around 9 and started the task.  We bought water bombs and grenades.  It was so late, I didn't really want to call all of my YW to come over, so I strategically texted one, who happens to have two twin brothers in YM to see if they could come help.  She said they could, but ended showing up alone.  So, we spent an hour making water balloons.  I spent 2 hours total and Matt probably 1.  It was a lot of work and of course once we broke out the balloons for a "water toss" game, they were gone within 10 minutes with all the little kids and big kids going crazy throwing them at each other.  I got a good shot at one of the YM who didn't show up to help!  Hahaha!  I got him good!  Here are a few pictures of Matt with a balloon we found when we came home - the last beloved water bomb.  It had fallen under the car before while we were loading the balloons up.  Matt let me practice my shot on him!

This is what I'm talking about! Robyn you must have a great husband or one that doesn't think your aim is that great ;).

Yeah, I think it was a mix of both. After seeing my shot earlier at the party, he should have been worried. I have no consistency though!

I bet spending hours filling up water balloons wasn't what you expected to be doing when you accepted the call for YW PRes. ha!! You will be blessed for the patience I am sure! Looks like lots of fun! Can't wait to see you this week! I am excited. Maybe Matt and I can duke out our political differences (well I guess not differences because I have never disagreed with anything he has pointed out, just been a little bored, ) with some water balloons as well. I like the idea!

What a neat activity! Wish we could have been there... Texas is super hot right now and we've completely turned off the AC because our electric bill last month was $366... So, water balloons would be fun.
