This week’s theme is balloons and when I think of balloons I always think of my dad’s 60th birthday.
We held it at my place and blew up about 200 helium filled balloons with long ribbon tails to cover the ceiling.
Then we all waited with the lights off in the lounge room for him to arrive.
It was a new house, with no curtains and we had windows letting in the moonlight.
We didn’t surprise him.
He could see the silhouettes of the guests through the windows not hidden by the wall.
The next morning, the balloons had started to fall from the ceiling and floated at every height.
The kids (aged about 4 and 16 months) were elated.
They captured them in enormous balloon bundles, crocodiles and ran through the house. [see video]
You could hardly see them for balloons.
