NEIGHBORHOOD BALLOON WARS
As part of the neighborhood Fourth of July block Party - Water Balloon Wars was played.
Its hard to see, but the two dads are holding a rubber sling-shot device and the boy in blue has just pulled the sling-shot back (filled with a water balloon) and let go. The balloon was propelled down the street to another group of kids and their parents. Each tried to catch the water filled balloon but I'm sure you know what happened......splat......!!
Don't you love the anticipation as the kids watch their friends get wet?
You can also see that most of the kids are holding their ammunition, ready for their next turn.
Enlarge the picture to see the action and its easier to see the sling-shot drawn very taut.
