Harris chose to have a "Laser Tag" party for his birthday this year. He's played laser tag once: last summer, with Tyler. And they literally played one game. He was pretty adamant, though, and so I googled "cheap laser tag" and found the perfect place for he and his friends to have a great time shooting each other! :)
Aside from the fact that it was a little on the stuffy side, we had such fun spending the afternoon with our friends. I even think the adults (at least the men) enjoyed the games more than the kids!!!!
And I promise Ben wasn't the only adult to play. Somehow, DB, Carter, and Cody managed to sneaky snake their way out of these pics. :)
If you're looking for a place to play, I highly recommend Laser Tag of Buford. It was well priced and very laid back (all the mamas ended up walking around the course while our kiddos were playing--even Emmy walked around without a vest!) and the course itself was, according to Cody, one of the best ones around.
Our group played their first game (bonus: our kids were the only ones on the course!) and then we headed to the "party room" for gifts and cake.
Harris chose to have Star Wars cupcakes. Ben and I chose to pick up a double decker cookie cake. Of course, the cookie cake was more of a spur-of-the-moment buy (they are sooooo hard to resist!) and the only one left had a huge "man cave" decoration in the middle of it! It still tasted fantastic, though. We devoured that thing. :)
Once we finished with cake and presents, the kids (big and little!) got to play their second game. Babe didn't play the first time around but couldn't wait to get her gear on for the second trip in. She LOVED it and has since declared that she'd like to have a laser tag birthday as well.
I don't think Ben would mind that one bit! In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if another laser tag outing was in our near future!
We finished off the afternoon with drink refills and popcorn (laser tag is a sweaty sport!) and then said goodbye to our friends.
For the last time this year, Happy Birthday, Harris! We are so crazy in love with you!!!
