Tag! You're It!

What do you get when you mix a bunch of teenage boys, forty year old men,  four cute girls and a truck load of guns?  FUN!!!
This is the 5th year that we have played laser tag for Shawn's birthday.  It is one of those games that the kids will never outgrow.  In fact, the dads look forward to the party as much as the kids.  This year we handed Tyler's invitation to his dad, Steve.  Steve RSVPed saying that he would be there but he wasn't sure about Tyler!  Tyler...we're glad your dad brought you along!

The Laser Tag guy is amazing.  He runs the whole party, leaving Rodney free to play and me free to take pictures.  This year we booked him from 9:30-11:30 at night.  Shawn thought it would be cool to do late night laser tag.  We probably should have warned the neighbors.  Imagine laying in bed and hearing a very loud, deep voice yelling "Come out and fight!"  Then you look out your window and see 30 silhouettes running around carrying guns.  Mental note for next year - warn neighbors!

There was an uninvited guest that would not leave.  The girls brought him in and then he refused to leave when asked.  I escorted him to the farm behind us twice and Rodney's dad escorted him once, but he kept coming back.  I guess he was a party animal...

The kids all fell in love with Twinkie (as they decided to name him).  Several of them asked their parents if they could take him home.  But Twinkie belongs on the farm with his mom and brothers and sisters.  I can only imagine the tales he went home and told his family!
Happy 13th birthday Shawn!  I hope you had a blast!
