Post-party balloon games

On Wednesday, Rob and the boys invented this game for balloons retired from birthday decorating. The object of the game is to carry as many balloons as you can from one end of the living room to the other in under one minute. It's okay to drop a balloon or two here and there as long as you pick it back up and finish out your awkward journey before the timer goes off.
They boys played this for about 30 minutes and were reluctant to quit for a bath.

Obviously bigger bodies have the advantage, as our stats bear out. Our records for balloons carried from one end of the room to the other were as follows: Owen, 6; Will, 8; me, 10; Rob, 12.
