Son #1 turned 11 today and we had a big surprise for him. Last night DH and I blew up two bags of balloons, way more that in the picture below. We placed a sheet in front of the door and placed all the balloons inside. SH and I had great fun doing it, as he managed the explode two balloons while blowing them up, so we thought our son would wake and understand what was going on, but it didnt???
This morning, I knocked on his door, asking him to wake up, and when he opened the door, the whole room was suddenly filled. And the only reaction we heard from behind the sheet was: "That was really cool."
So I guess our surprise worked. :-)
