A couple of Jimmy's friends from high school (we missed you May's and Merrill's) came over this past weekend for a cook out. We had such a fun time. Their were SIX little girls and Ben... poor guy! Jimmy set up a massive slip and slide going down our big hill in the back yard. It was 25 feet long and 10 feet across therefore allowing all the little girls to go at one time... SO FUN! You have never heard more giggling! We didn't have any major injuries either... probably due to the fact that they are all little girls and very careful not to run into one another. Most like a far cry from how six little boys would have been on it! =)
After hamburgers and hot dogs and the ice cream sundae bar the daddy's went crazy over a simple little $4 toy I purchased at our local grocery store... a water balloon launcher. You would have thought I spent hundreds of dollars. The had a blast with it. In fact they had such a blast that they made a trip back to said grocery store for three dozen eggs to shoot out of it. We have two acres so it all stayed on our property, we weren't egging the neighbors but I'm sure that would have been more fun (I'm kidding, I'm kidding..maybe). Anyway, the $4 toy was a hit and Jimmy can't wait for the next group of people to come over an play with it. In fact our Sunday school class is coming over this weekend and he has some game cooked up about one person launching it and another person trying to catch it.... we shall see! =)
Overall though, the night was a smashing success and we hope to have everyone over again soon.
