Paintball Gone Wild
Yesterday (saturday) was a beautiful October day and after our soccer game in the morning (which we won 3-2), we all headed out to play Paintball.
What we thought would be just a couple of hours - because all the kids would surely get tired of playing and start whining to go home - turned into a 4 hour ordeal. They had a blast!
On the way out, P swayed back and forth. He was going to play, then not, then going to, then not. Finally he decided he was playing. I figured that we'd pay the $$$ for him to play, he'd play one round and then poop out. That was not the case! That kiddo played for 4 hours and would have gone an additional 4 hours if we would have let him.
There is a referee that heads up the teams. He took the group of about 30, split them in half, and they hit the fields. Each field had different 'props' and required different survival techniques. It was fun watching and listening to them plan strategy. It was like Xbox live. haha
There was a couple playing with us that had walkie talkies and would communicate to each other locations of the enemy. I dont think that plan proved to be very efficient. I noticed that they were usually the ones out first.
Here's a couple of pictures we got while out playing. The first field we played was the spools, but there were about 8 different fields to play.
