My son has been asking to go paintballing for a year. Of course it’s something that has always eluded him due to the expense – but several months ago – my Groupon email presented me with this awesome deal for two players that I couldn’t pass up. It was about the same amount that I would have spent on a little birthday party for him and so … his dream of paintballing with a buddy came true.
They had the entire place to themselves for their first three games … shooting each other – making a hit – limping around for a few minutes – comparing wounds – and then going back at it until they ran out of ammo.
This is why they wear masks (thankfully!!)
This is where things got interesting. 3 BIG guys and 2 girls came in to play. The boys were a bundle of nerves yet pumped to have some other’s to play against. One said “I’m glad I went to the bathroom ahead of time!” The other walked by me and said “Help me!” under his breath. HA! The boys looked SO little next to these big guys … They had a blast …
Another hit in the eye … this time it went through the mask!!
Hunter says it was the best birthday party ever.All it takes is a best friend and the rush of shooting. Good times! Love the boys! Next time … maybe I’ll get out there with them!
