Our Ethan turned double digits this summer and with it the biggest birthday party yet! This battle/party had been in the works for months! James and Ethan are very much into Nerf and were begging to have a bunch of kids over for a full blown Nerf battle. So we decided to go ahead with it for Ethan's birthday party. We had four teams each with an adult leader. Each team started out by going to one of four stations; face paint, get your gear, rules, and creating a team flag. Once trough the stations the teams headed to the woods for 30 minutes to build their forts. Once all teams were back to base camp the battle began! The rules were a capture the flag/treasure hunt type theme, the first team to find the "golden tiki man" and be back to base camp with all members and their flag wins.
Let the battle begin...
Here is Ethan the warrior!
Going over the rules with the teams.
James' team with their flag.
A little bit of team strategy.
Whenever you were "hit" you had to come to base camp for 1 minute. I was able to get lots of good shots of the kids while there.
Mimi and Papa were brought water balloons to add to the fun!
And in the blink of an eye...
a little water fun can turn into... WATER FIGHT!!!
After the battle was over we all gathered around for cake!
Ethan got lots of awesome gifts! Thanks goes out to everyone who made his 10th birthday the best one yet!
Happy Birthday Ethan!
We love you!!!
