Adventure is Out There - An UP Themed Birthday

First order of business, a bunch of balloons.
Next, tie them to the house.
Technically, it's my birthday party too, thus the 8 and the 29.

Gotta have grape soda!

I made Grape soda pins for the guests.

I hung clouds to the ceiling by running fishing line through white stuffing and attaching them to the ceiling with clear thumbtacks.

Our family's version of the Carl and Ellie mailbox.

Up cupcake house.  I found a picture of the house online, printed and cut it out, and glued in on a piece of blue poster board

Cloud Jello.  I saw it here first.

Hard boiled eggs colored to look like balloons.

What is more fun than a water balloon fight?  A paint balloon fight!!!

Today I filled water balloons with a little bit of paint and then the rest of the way with water.  My only rules were to not hit anyone in the face and to not hit the photographer (me).

This is my hand after filling up a ton of balloons.  This moment is all I am promised with my kids, and I am trying to make the most of it!
