A blast....or should I say splash?

On Friday my cousin and I "hosted" a big water party with a few
friends and relatives.
We decided to have a water balloon and water gun fight.
There was a grand total of 600 balloons and I
had the long task of filling them all (of course, some popped or had holes
so I only filled about 560-580). My aunt was so kind as to help me with the filling.
The party was supposed to start at 3:00 so, I went to my cousins house around
11:25 and started to fill balloons around 11:45 and was filling all
those balloons till 3:00!!!!
We filled a little kiddie pool PLUS my aunts bathtub all the way to the top with balloons.

This is what it looked like.
Everybody got there late so we didn't start till around 3:45.
We ate hot dogs, hamburgers and such and then the fun began.

The little kids had already started so the guns were everywhere.
The "teams" were sort of uneven because my cousin, Josue didn't
want to get wet!!!
It turned out that Caleb, Christian (my other cousin) and Edgardo (a friend from church)
were against me and Abigail (another cousin)
and of course, 3 boys against 2 girls is kind of uneven.

Even some of the adults started to throw balloons and shoot at each other.

We also had 2 water slides with soap all over them which made it
very hard to walk on.

We all enjoyed it immensely even though the balloons stung when they hit you.
After we had changed into dry clothes and had dessert (some of us)
the guys decided to engage in a video game battle. (one that didn't hurt so much)
It was funny to see how intent they were on the game.
We all left around 8:00 (after cleaning up some, of course.)
It was soooooo fun and I can't wait to do it again.

That sounds like a ton of fun! Was your Dad using the hose to get everyone as they ran past??! He looks like he has everything "under control"!!! :o)
I'm so glad that you had fun and still managed to survive!

Dear Ashley,
yes!! my dad was wetting everyone
with the hose because he didn't have any extra clothes and he had to defend himself (that is what my dad said)
I almost didn't survive I got hit on the side of my face and I couldn't feel it. Ouchhhhh!!
