This past weekend, we celebrated the J-man's 11th birthday with a highly anticipated nerf war. It was quite the event. A few days after the invitations went out, the questions started, "Can my dad come too?" or "Would it be okay if my husband stopped by?" So of course, I sent a message saying, "Dads are invited too," because we all know they are all just big kids at heart. I don't know who was more excited, J or his friends and their dads. Anyway, we started at the house with "Nerf Bootcamp" where they practiced their skills (many of my ideas where thanks too blackberryvine.blogspot.com and a few other nerf parties blogs). After Bootcamp was complete, we headed up to the school playground (it's in our neighborhood) for the epic battle. They had a great time and I'm sure they all slept incredibly well that night. The J-man had a fantastic time= Mission Accomplished!
|They played capture the flag. This was one team's base. No one won because they hid the flags too well, but they had great time just the same.|
