Yes, we’re those parents. The ones who allow their children to ask for “swords” from the balloon guy, and then let them run around chasing each other with aforementioned swords until they wear themselves out. In fairness to us, though:
- It is winter in Portland and we are starved for children’s entertainment.
- The Crystal Ballroom floor is big. And bouncy. Perfect for two active little boys – and perfect for wearing them out.
- Only ONE child asked for the sword and the other decided on behalf of his brother. Who knows? Samuel may be a pacifist underneath all of that big brother influence.
- Balloon swords only last a couple of hours. Less, if you manage to get a little too excited and accidentally squeeze it until it pops.
