Birthday Paintball

If you've seen these on facebook already you may want to scroll down anyway :) There are a few more pictures here, namely of the two cutest boys there! :D Joshua and Brannon had a great time playing paintball with the big boys.

Happy Birthday Zach :) Nate had a great time helping get everything set up. And providing the woods to play in. And running in to shoot people a few times ;)

Ok, everybody, put on a serious/mean face...

Aaron took a few of these, as I was less than willing to dash around with an orange vest and a mask on taking blind pictures (it's impossible to look through the camera with a paintball mask on, so it's point in the right direction press the button and hope. Still he got a few good ones :)

Bear (Nate said to him, you shouldn't wear that hat it's way too visible and Bear said, I like it that way, lol)
Xeno and Cameron
So cute :)

Aaron divvying out paint as they get ready for another round

Nate likes this picture because "It's a cool picture, but mostly it's my guns"
They played a game with four or five teams of two, all against each other at once. They had Zach choose his teammate first, which he was reluctant to do. I don't think that two of his friends saying "Zach, pick him" about each other was helping him at all.
He ended up picking his dad for his teammate
My boys :D
Cameron and McKenzie
Nate helping Brannon
Back from a round (he's running to give his mama a hug, I will MISS these days!!!)
Enjoying each other between battles...
Brannon's all tuckered out. When he had to sit out a round due to a gun shortage he decided he'd hitch a ride home with Grandfather who happened by in his truck.
Nate (here they finally battled close to the road where I was waiting so I got to take some pictures of the fray :)
There's that high visibility hat

When I grinned and pointed to Joshua's pose in the picture Nate said, "What? Do I do that or something?" :)
Joshua and Xeno (when Joshua and I first arrived, I think between the second and third round, Xeno was the first off the mountain and Joshua cried "Xeno!" and ran to him and gave him a giant, long hug. The joy of a six-yr-old's love. It may be somewhat lost on a teenager, but Mama sure appreciates watching it)

This was an interesting one, they battled near the road again and we watched Owen carefully sneaking up on Nate while Nate's attention was elsewhere...
Here's Joshua, entrenched behind his tree. Nate is a bit in front of him and to the left behind a log. Don't know how I didn't get that picture on here, but I've been working on downloading these all afternoon and I'm done, you'll have to imagine it...
A close-up of super cuteness!! ;)
Bored waiting for a round that was taking too long (teenagers running to the top of the mountain instead of "stay close to the road to make it a quick round") Nate and Aaron decide to run up the hill and shoot whoever they see. And to make it more fun "let's wear the orange vests so they see us coming" The funny thing was they got away with flanking someone who thought they were taking pictures (because of earlier forays with the camera and an orange vest)
Done playing, they're using up the last of their paint on some trees...
And a fun time was had by all...
