Sunday Water Fun

I am linking this post to Smiling Sally's Blue Monday posts, since so many people had blue on in the photos!

After church today, Denny asked "Are we going to someones house or something today?"  I mentioned that yes, people are headed over to our house, and he said "I'm thinking we need to have a water balloon fight or something, it's going to be 90 degrees today!"  We all laughed and agreed, and while we went home and ordered pizza, he went to the store.

Uncle Denny was the ring leader today of everyone, young and older alike.  He not only bought water balloons, but he bought water guns, and a slip and slide!

One of the dads got it all set up and the kids had a total blast on it!

Meanwhile Mikey and Jonathan showed up with some fire power of their own and joined in the filling of balloons...there were so many water balloons!

They not only filled the coolers, but they filled someones shirt as well...

Can you tell who is hiding a water balloon?

Even Pastor Mike got in on the action... here he is waiting patiently to squirt someone!

This little lady loved the guns and the slip and slide today...I think she probably fell asleep 2 minutes down the road tonight!

Kyle had some two fisted action going on, all helped out by that fancy footwork!

Then came some sack races that had the "loser" get crowned by a water balloon...they were all so wet they didn't even care!  Here is the first group with Sarah leading the way.  

Even high school graduates got in on the fun!

Then it was back to the slip and slide fun....which lead to this:

Pardon my loud cheering and laughing.

We missed you would have laughed so hard!  It was a great day...thanks Uncle Denny and everyone else!
