We had a pre-birthday celebration this weekend for family and Pops figured we needed some outdoor entertainment. Enter PVC pipe, duct tape, empty water jugs, and pinecones.
Shove a pinecone in the pipe, poke it all the way down with a stick, aim, and stomp hard on that attached empty water jug.
Don't forget the safety goggles and a good measure of serious concentration!
Blow up the deflated water jug and you are set for another launch.
Amidst all of the mayhem I turned to my brother and sister-in-law and mentioned, "You know, it's going to be a good decade or more until they realize this isn't normal birthday entertainment."
Yes, we do veer towards the odd end of the "normal" spectrum, but we sure know how to have a good time.
