The newest obsession

What is it about the most hazardous things that make them so darn fun?

Toilets? Yay! Power drills? Yippee! Outlets? Hooray!

Balloons: super-fun-but-super-dangerous.

Who knew two preschoolers could have such a ridiculously great time. Over the weekend the kids each got a balloon from a little friend's birthday party. They squealed and ran around like chickens with their heads cut off, as if these were the last balloons on the face of the planet. That was fun to watch. Pure joy.

Once we got home, they were still excited. And that's when they began the "drag your chairs around the house to retrieve the balloon which flew away" game.

About 4 hours later, mean 'ol mom ended the beloved game when things got a little out of hand.

Emily pouted quite a bit before deciding it appropriate to use the balloon string tied around Leo's precious little neck as a leash.

Mommy soon decided that the balloons needed a little rest and the kids could color picture of balloons instead. This did not go over as well as I would have liked:) I think I know what they'll be getting for their birthdays this year.

Disclaimer: No adorable rascals were hurt during this fun-fest.
