When the Nerf Mega Thunderbow Blaster came in the mail, and I realized what it was, I quickly ushered it upstairs before my husband and boys could see.  I opened the box, loaded it up and then snuck back downstairs.  Then, I unleashed.  Much laughter followed and my boys were more than happy to add his ginormous Nerf product to their already large … [Read more...]
