Water Balloon Fight

They waited our entire visit for the big water balloon fight, and it did not disappoint. The kids had a blast, and the adults had a blast watching.

This is one of the few times where I felt like the moments are captured just right. They're certainly not perfect, but they're exactly what I want to remember about this night. No staging, no perfect light, little editing. Just lots of good times, and these photographs give me a way to remember it forever.

There are lots of pictures. You've been warned.

Check out the hand on Rory's head.

Did I mention Brian took care of getting all the balloons ready while Becky and I took a little shopping trip?

William and Xavier (affectionately known as "the boys") are very handsy, and they're always loving on Camden. This scene of William and Camden is pretty typical and totally cracks me up.

If you don't smile when looking at these pics something is wrong! You can tell how much fun they all had. And, seriously, your kids have the best tans. I'm so jealous! :)
This is one of your posts where I keep thinking I found my favorite photo, then I get a little further and I replace it! Soooo many fun photos in this batch!!! And the expression on Camden's face when his root beer float shows up?!? Priceless!!! *that* is my favorite photo!

This post is fantastic. What a fun fun time! The action is incredible - and Rory's attitude in some of those pictures is priceless. This has inspired me to go buy some water balloons!
