This one. He’s going to be 16 in less than a week. What.
It was his year for a friend party and what he really wanted was an epic paintball experience. Playing with your sisters is one thing, but he wanted more. It was perfect. We also celebrated a bit early before our entire month went mad. That was also perfect.
There were also Black Forest Cupcakes so I don’t think the day could have been better.
A few friends, another dad, and a church leader met at our house then they headed out to BlackRiver Paintball. It was the same place we took all the kids a few months back. The girls and I delivered lunch (and an epic box of cupcakes) when their time was just about over and they had worked up an appetite. Fun and noteworthy bruises were had by all (including one on Garyn’s forehead that somehow got past the face shield!) and we will be celebrating the rest of his birthday this coming week…including tackling a full sized, traditional Black Forest Cake. Wish me luck!
