Give the littlest boy the biggest guy its the only way!

Connor's party will be here in just a few short days. I'm a nervous wreck, not because of the party, but because well he will be two. Two is just one step closer to twenty in my eyes and its happening all way to fast. The last few days have been rough and we debated for awhile if there even would be a party after all as we have been up the last few nights with a high temperature and non stop screaming. Well those pesky 2 year old molers are coming in and they are sending my little man for a total loop as he has been a cranky wreck for the last two weeks and the fevers just mean we are getting closer to relief as with every tooth we got high high fevers before they finally broke through.

Well today was a really good day, the weather was warm, and Connor seems at least temporarly free of his miserable attitude. So we took advantage by testing out some of the birthday party items before the real party on Sunday. The two items we couldn't wait to rip open are in no way the biggest or flashest items on our agenda but they have one thing in common that just happens to be Connor's favorite thing in the world, water. This kid was born swimming I think as its nearly impossible to keep him away from a water source warm or cold. So I decided early on that his birthday party had to have water intergrated into it somehow. The only problem is his guest list ranges from one year olds to twenty-one year olds... so what could they do that they would all enjoy? Waterguns of course!

Connor is by far the smallest kid at his party, always. Even his one year old cousin out weighs him by a considerable amount. The only way to make this watergun idea fair at all was to give Connor the biggest water gun and set him loose on his unexpecting guests. Heh, you can hear me cackling now if you listen. So we had to get some practice in before the big day. His gun of choice for the birthday party will be the Super Soaker 50 and dad will be backing him up with the Super Soaker Quickshot that we reviewed last year.

The Super Soaker 50 is the iconic water gun that really started the whole water gun craze. I had the same gun as a child the only diffrence is really how you put the water in the gun. To this day its still the easiest to shoot and one of the most reliable water guns made if you ask me. Connor can pretty easily pump the barrel and shoot with suprising accuracy even with his small frame and arm length. With a 35 foot shooting distance I'm pretty sure he will have no problems getting his cousins and friends soaking wet before the party is over! Plus who can get mad at that angelic little face when its laughing and running at you at full blast with a water gun?

There is a reason why the Super Soaker 50 is still such a great toy. Styled after the orginal Super Soaker gun very ltitle has changed since my very first Super Soaker and its still as much fun as I remeber!

Check out the Super Soaker 50!

The Quick Blast looks great, but I like this Original 50 and I would love to win so I can shoot my graduating students on the last days of school. They always have great waterguns and I have the 99 cents store one.
