She said "Be careful not to pop the balloon . . . .


as you take it out of the basket . . . . .


well, I took it out and it didn't pop . . . . .


so I tossed it into the sink from across the room, and it didn't pop . . . . . .


so I threw it as hard as I could into the bottom of the sink, and it still didn't pop . . . . .


so, I told the girls they could throw them out the window of my bedroom . . . . .


they did and the balloons still didn't pop . . . .


so they said "You must tell the aunt and grandmother about this." We decided to take pictures as we tried again . . . . .


so we threw the balloons out the window yet again and . . . .


One finally popped!


but the other one did not . . . . .


So a girl threw it as hard as she could down onto the driveway from atop the bench, and it popped too.

Those were some darn sturdy ballons!

but aren't you glad - you really didn't want them to pop in your knitting and the girls had lots of fun

maybe I should send some more - you guys had way too much quality time

We did have a lot of fun with them. They'd been tossed around in the laundry room for days before I decided that they really should be dealt with. Miss M dropped hers while carrying it back upstairs and, fortunately, it didn't break on the wood floors . . . . those are some darn sturdy balloons . . . .
