There was a stomp-the-balloon activity at the end. Melissa was not interested in stomping, but took a great deal of pleasure in blowing up The Biggest Balloon Ever.
Isaac wanted to stomp at first but got intimidated by the much bigger scouts and adults jumping around. So I tied his balloon to my ankle instead, and holding hands we went around stomping until one of the scouts stepped on our string and pulled it off.
Grandma Ellis made a tent for Matthew while she was here, matching a smaller one for Isaac.
Matthew enjoys it way more than I would have expected for a child of the videogame generation. He especially likes to sleep in it. This invariably ends with his arms and legs sticking out as he squirms around in his sleep and compacts the tent about him.
