The Day McCann Wanted To Blow Up 100 Balloons: First Annual Cherry Lane Balloon Fest

Lily REALLY wanted to make pinatas, so we bought some balloons...

Made newspaper strips...

And mixed up some flour paste.

We blew up a couple balloons...

Dipped the newspaper strips in the flour paste...


Then carefully placed them on our balloons.

McCann's flour paste was gone after only three strips. I had to teach him how to properly strip away the excess paste.

As you can see from McCann's hands, this is a very messy process.

Lily's hands are another example of how messy this can get.

It got all over the table too.

BUT...this story is not about pinatas. It's about balloons. 100 balloons, to be exact. We had all those left over balloons. McCann wanted to buy more and blow them all up. So we did.

We blew up small balloons...

Medium sized balloons...

And BIG balloons.

We also blew up odd shaped balloons...

And multi-colored balloons.

Once we were done, we had 100 balloons to play in.

We rolled in them...

And we laid in them...

And we kicked them...

We jumped ino them...

We played baseball with them.

And we sword fought with them.

This was all fun, but I had a massive headache from blowing up 100 balloons, and...

...I passed out from the smell of latex rubber. We will probably do it again next year, though.
