100 water balloons in 1 minute

Bunch O Balloons water balloon fight

This is genius: A father of eight has invented a product that can fill 100 water balloons in less than a minute. Bunch O Balloons is a hose attachment with 37 pre-connected balloons that tie themselves when filled. All you need is a garden hose, a bucket of water to catch the filled balloons, and your bathing suit to have an epic water balloon fight! Now, I haven't participated in a water … READ MORE!

What movies do you like to watch over and over?

In yesterday's post, I mentioned that Levi has only seen three or four movies. What I forgot to include is that he's watched each of them multiple times.
