Water Blaster!

One of Owen's Christmas presents came from Value Village. It was still in the box like new. It's a water blaster car! 

A couple weekends ago it was beautiful...so I thought it would be fun to take it for a spin. 

Michael showed the boys how it worked. You first hooked the car up to the lever portion. 

The first time you step on the lever it fills the car and the reserve tank up with water. Then the second time you step on it it makes water shoot out of the tailpipes of the car. 

Then you step on it again and off it goes! 

The longer you let the water pressure build up the farther the car would travel. 

Even though it was beautiful...it was FREEZING!!! 

And Michael was outside in bare feet! Brrrrr! 

After freezing for a while Michael and I went inside while the boys still played. They had a hard time getting the car to fully latch onto the lever portion. We showed, explained and gave advise on how they could work together as a team to get it latched properly. Then they went outside and worked as a team and ended up breaking the car. Seriously! I think they maybe got to play with it for 30 - 45 minutes. Well...at least I didn't pay full price! :)
