The Water Fight
Classic. Super Soakers extraordinaire, water buckets, even water bottles for those without a weapon. It all began when hubby took his newly acquired birthday super soaker out of the package. He got the big one, Big L got the little one. Off they went. E & Y quickly began stalking them round the house and people got "mildly" damp. Then Jay upped the "aunti" At Buddy B's suggestion she hung out the 2nd story laundry room window and waited for Y to guide the boys underneath. (we managed to talk her out of going out my bedroom window onto the over hang - good thing!!!) It worked. Hubby managed to get away fairly dry, but Big L was not so lucky. Being 4, the whole water thing from above was little traumatic. Good thing hubby came to console him - guess who got soaked while that happened!! Nothing like a little bait. Well, Big L, now shirtless and ready for a little retaliation came on strong. Meanwhile, buddy B had more suggestions for Jay & E. Go hang out the front door and wait behind the pillars (while he promptly informed the boys at the back door of this - who's a double agent?????). A long battle ensued while Y ran next door to borrow 2 more super soakers -GAME ON!! Meanwhile Big L was a little miffed with his shoes - buddy B to the rescue - goes outside to help - who can resist that smile?? Oh poor buddy B - I just happened to lock the door after him - after of course telling Y at the back to go round front with a fresh load of ammo. Did you see the look on his face when he realized he couldn't get back in??? What a hoot. Jay's hubby, Little L and I were the only ones to stay dry. My kids were most curious that Uncle didn't come out. Maybe next time!!
