WW – Water Balloon War

By Wednesday, August 21, 2013 33 , , , , Permalink 0

August is not almost over and our 80 degree weather days are long gone.

With our summer nearly on its last leg (seriously) we have decided to bring the big guns out, form an artillery, and have a Water Balloon War! Of course boys will be boys and have their own minds, right? Instead of declaring war on each other they decided to declare war on the lawn chairs, of all things!

I guess that fighting your brother is not nearly as fun when you are given permission to…I guess we will have to fight one another this winter when we go to Mt. Baker!!

Snowball Fight!!

Water Balloon War Water Balloon War Water Balloon War Water Balloon War Water Balloon War Water Balloon War Water Balloon War Water Balloon WarNow it is time to enjoy our last days of summer break before A. is headed to school for the very first time in his life!

    Looks super fun! I can’t wait until our next little one is born so my daughter has a playmate around all the time! Then I’ll have an excuse like this to work on my amateur photography skills!

    That is such a fun activity for the end of summer. I think we only got in one water balloon war this year. I’ll have to remedy that.

      I spent so many summers playing by the pool and enjoying water balloon fights with my family. All great memories!! 🙂

    I used to love running around with water balloons when I was a kid. Such wonderful summer memories! I have actually been pretty disappointed in August this year. I cannot remember an August so cold, and it has been getting down into the mid-40s at night. It hasn’t been swimming weather in about three weeks now, although the weather channel has been promising a last heat wave. Hopefully that actually shows up because I am so not ready for summer to be over!

      We were just talking about it the other day. Summer is long gone where we live (Pacific North West). We can already notice a change in the air. Usually August is the hottest but guess we will have Autumn weather pretty soon!

    Given how hot it is today (in the 30’s), we should definitely pull out the water balloons!

    I love how your pictures are always “soft” looking. What’s your trick?

    Aw–first time at school-hope he really enjoys it–and no water balloon fights are not as much fun when you have permission!!

    Looks like your boys had a blast! We have a weekly water balloon fight during the summer. Then we have a huge one with all kinds of water toys and balloons the week before school starts.
