"When the neighborhood kids have a water balloon war... i stay inside!" This is my illustration for this week's Illustration Friday topic - "stay". I loved water balloon wars when I was young. Who doesn't love them? The only bummer was having to pick up all of the bits and pieces of broken water balloons all over the backyard!!! Maybe that's why kids stick to Super Soakers these days, or virtual water balloon fights on the Wii... I'd prefer a combo of water balloons AND Super Soakers. Especially the Super Soaker with the backpack water supply! hah ha!
