What we did for our Gender Reveal

So my husband and I just returned from overseas due to me separating from the military and our family planned a welcome back party. 
We decided to crash it, cause the day before the party we had a gender ultrasound, secretly. 
We bought a board, paint, water balloons and ribbon. Filled all the water balloons the night before until midnight, and set it up next to where the party was taking place. 
All the water balloons were filled with water but we told everyone that one bin had a paint filled balloon and had everyone take shots at our board. 
We lied at filled two balloons separately and hid them outside the bins, and we ended up throwing them at the end. 
Paint ended up everywhere, but it was awesome! 
We are going to cut a heart out of the board and keep it in Baby Lincoln's room.
