On a recent hot day when the sun was out and flooding the back yard ... yes I know, hard to believe that foggy Monterey had a hot sunny day, right ... we decided to keep the fair-skinned ones indoors to play until the shade provided a little more protection outdoors.
To their amusement, we blew up helium balloons.
They made everything turn green and yellow - including each other.
They jumped, so, so high to reach their balloons.
Such a simple thing.
2 helium balloons.
Providing hours of entertainment.
Disclosure: Last year at BlogHer '09 I received a coupon for a free Balloon Time box. A year later, we keep these on hand, tucked away safe and sound, for when moments like these arise.
