The Ties That Bind...

...are made of Silly String.

After a quick reading (more like an intentionally abbrieviated skimming) of the party favor-doled cans by Sarah, "It says, 'Shake well before using. Caution: blah, blah, blah...,'" we made the move to the backyard to let the fun begin.
TV, Schmee Vee. Sometimes a good running mess is the very best form of entertainment (not to mention exercise). And yes, I did make them clean up the aftermath!

I love that your kids can play together this way. It makes me look forward to the time when Robby is older and he and Sam can have fun together. And Silly string rocks.

We have two weeks left of our summer vacation and you have just provided us with a fun idea...what could be more perfect than a big backyard and cans of silly string?!

The backyard we have, but I'll have to go get some silly string.

Thanks for the great idea...maybe I'll save it for a last weekend fun activity before school starts (believe it or not, the kids in our area go back Aug. 11th. Ugh.).

My kids will *LOVE* this - even more than spraying each other with the garden hose LOL

Great idea :)
