Water Balls

When Vic and I were in New Zealand this year, we expressed how impressed we were with the accommodations for children: skate parks, bungie rides, traditional playgrounds, and...the dreaded water balls.

Today in Massachusetts, because a five-year-old had an as-yet-unexplained reaction, water balls are on their way to being banned. Personally, I do not believe that they are essentially "giant plastic bags" that children can put over their heads, as some-or-other commissioner said on the news. What I think they are is wicked fun.

So now I guess the number of inches of padding that a playground must have below its equipment gets larger.
