This Weekend

I played Laser Tag for the first time this weekend. It was FUN! It was the adults versus the kids we tutor in a two-story, black-lit playing field. We were all running around, trying to tag each other and the "bases." I discovered I'm a little bit of a daredevil in combat - willing to catch the brunt of the opposition forces in pursuit of attacking their base. : )
The kids won both games - BUT we would have had them the next game! It just took us a little longer to get the hang of it, not being experienced in these things. :P They keep pushing for paintball, too, but I have to admit I'm a little scared of that one.
It was beautiful this weekend. I spent a good deal of the afternoon Sunday out walking on Town Lake. It was so nice!

Isn't that a BLAST ! My son and some of his pals love to do that for birthdays...and a bunch of the dads like to play too. It's a workout too.

It's definitely a workout! We were all breathing hard and sweating by the end. It kind of surprised me, but I guess with all the running back and forth to reload ...
Definitely a blast!

I definitely try to push for paintball as a work team-building exercise, but always get shot down. I suppose that everyone thinks that people will gang up on the bosses (duh, isn't that the point?) :)

Well, yes. Just like I suspect they would gang up on us tutors!
