It’s not reaching far for this one because it’s a special occasion. My kiddo is turning 7. To be honest, I’ve been horrible at doing the big birthday parties. His birthday is in August and generally when everyone from his school is on vacation (or at least that’s the excuse I use). So his birthdays usually end up with all my adult friends dressing up like a pirate or a super hero (depending on the theme) and showing up for a cook out where he is the center of attention. This year I gave in to the parental pressure and had a kids birthday party for him.
I went with the safe bet and emailed everyone from his class and boy scout troop (because I had all the parent emails). Several responded, so I planned a water balloon party in the park. I figured this way we could beat the heat. I spent the evening before blowing up 500 water balloons. Thank God I had help! My kiddo was a trooper and gave himself a blister blowing them up.
It turned out to e a great party and we had a lot of fun. Some how I turned out to be a target and ended up drenched. Fortunately I have no pictures of this because cameras were not safe. However, I believe having my first kid birthday party and blowing up 500 water balloons qualifies for an adventure.
