An office full of balloons

While Jim was out of the office, we decided that we needed to leave him a welcome home present and graduation surprise in his office.  It comprised of over 1500 balloons (including Batman, Shamoo, and an alligator).  We used Justin's air compressor and a couple nozzles to fill the balloons. It was definitely not a quiet or fast operation, but it was a lot of fun working with Justin, Ben, Aubrey, Dani, and others to fill the office.

Eventually, we made it all the way to the ceiling, dropping the last 30-50 balloons in through the ceiling panels from Jared's office to top it all off.  The scene from outside the door was pretty awesome!

The next day, before Jim arrived before Jared and moved a good number of them into Jared's office!

Jim's family came to visit and buried themselves in the balloons (we brought them back from Jared's office back to Jim's).  They had a lot of fun jumping around in the balloons.

At the end of the day, we popped all the balloons with scissors and x-acto knives.  End of the day balloon carnage!
