So I spent my birthday this year watching the boys and their friends soak each other with Nerf Super Soakers and eating Simply Cheetos Natural Cheese Puffs, courtesy of House Party! Actually, it was a great way to take my mind off of the fact that I am one year away from being middle aged. I cannot believe I am almost eligible for an AARP membership! I don't wanna talk about it anymore.
Sooooo...back to topic of the party. Which is way more fun to talk about than my age! Our weekend looked like this:
|Party pack from House Party!|
|The Water Warriors (minus two, who arrived late and missed the photos!)|
|Spray the shaving cream off your teammate's shower cap!|
|Ready for some serious spray action!|
|Drew the short straws and wondering how to escape|
The boys were all very happy with the new Nerf Super Soaker models, which have one pump action and good distance. They like the Shotwave Blaster model the best, because it has a removable water cartridge, which makes refilling easier and faster. Less time at the water trough means less chance of getting sprayed while reloading and a faster return to the front lines to soak opponents!
BTW...there are some really good sales going on right now on the Super Soakers! Toys R Us, Walmart and Target all had some pretty low prices on all of their new Nerf Super Soaker models! Worth the price to get the family outside and moving!
Between games and water wars we enjoyed snacking on various veggies and fruits, as well as Simply Cheetos Natural White Cheddar Cheese Puffs. OK...I won't lie. I love Cheetos. I hardly ever buy them because they are basically just orange colored, cheesy corn flavored chemical air, but I love how they melt/crunch in my mouth. I was skeptical that a "natural" Cheeto could even be manufactured, let alone made to taste good. Well, I'm here to tell you that the natural, white cheddar version of Cheetos is a worthy substitute for the orange version. The taste is not as strong, but the texture is pretty much the same and I absolutely LOVE that the new version is truly all natural. No dyes, no preservatives. Not all the kids liked the White Cheddar flavor, but most loved the new Cheetos and gobbled them right up.
I can honestly say this Nerf Gun Super Soaker party was the greatest way to spend a birthday! It did my Mommy Heart good to see my boys running and laughing and playing in the summer sun and I felt younger just being out there with them! Can't wait to get everyone together to do this again!
