|Gearing up for Laser Tag!|
We met the other families we'd be playing with and suited up with our lasers and crazy looking head gear that acted as the receiver for the signal. We split up into our teams, our family was the only one that split up according to gender.
We went into the darkened arena and set up our blockades. The music started which was our signal to begin. My son was soo excited he ran across enemy lines and just started firing. He didn't quite realize how easy a target he was standing out in the open. I think he was the first one out. I'm not sure what happened to my husband...all I know is that when the first game was over it was the girls who had won.
The boys quickly came back and won the next game.
Now it was time to get serious. Jess, Alyssa and I worked together like a special forces unit to pick off the other team. We stood back to back behind a barrier and took turns firing on them. We inched our way up to their blockades by crawling on our hands and knees. They didn't even know what hit them.
We kept returning to the arena after each round. The girls and I felt like Jedis defeating the Empire, only it was much easier. We never let the boys' team win another round!
FINAL SCORE: 8-1
Maybe you could say it was beginner's luck, but I don't think so! I can't wait for the rematch.
Do you have friendly competition within your family? Is it boys vs. girls or do you team up in other ways?
