You wanna piece of me?

This past weekend my family came to visit. They had to run away from Ike! Thankfully their city was spared, but I'm glad they came to see us! On Saturday night, we took everyone to Strikz to go bowling for Aubrey's birthday. Well, the wait for a lane was close to two hours, so we decided to do laser tag instead. Neither of the girls had ever done it before and were excited(and nervous) to do it. They both ended up LOVING it! We were worried Ella would be scared since the room is kinda dark, but she was smiling so big as she was running around shooting everyone. It was lots of fun! It was my mom's first time too. It was fun all playing together as a family. The results were Joey-1st place, Mark-2nd place, Tara-3rd place. Good job guys! Maybe next time I'll actually rank. . .

Go check out Aubrey's blog for more pics from our visit with my family!

Thanks for showing us such a good time! It was so much fun playing laser tag with all of you (even though I came in last place)- (My gun must not have been working right- j.k.) The girls looked so cute in their little vests. Thanks for letting us run away to your house, we had a blast!!

Oh, fun times! We actually did go bowling this past weekend -- great minds, I guess! (even though you didn't actually get to bowl!) So glad your family is OK.

Aubrey looks like she is ready for some serious LaserTag and Ella just can't keep the grin off of her face, both really cute. Love you all.

Excuse me, but I came in second place, thank you very much. And if I'd worked a bit harder, I would've pummeled Joey into the ground. Next time, Joey, next time...
I love everyone's face in the picture. Ella's is hilarious, while Joey's and Aubrey's are downright scary. lol

I love laser tag ~ but the pack they put on your back is deadly. I thought I would fall down dead from the exhaustion of wearing it for even 15 minutes. Glad you guys had a great time!
