Bubbles rumble up from the super soaker's canister as it's submerged in the 5-gallon bucket. The rubber snaps tightly around the faucet as someone fills a balloon. The sprinkler creeks back and forth while showering the freshly cut grass, and the steaks spit and crackle on the charcoal-fired grill. Then, the coolest thing of all happens, someone sparks a tropical-smelling joint.
