Happy Birthday, Sophia! (a post by Anna)

Back in June, Lee and I traveled to a North Carolina to see two of our friends get hitched. Pre-wedding, we opted for some laser tag.

Upon arrival we obtained our sensors with code names, and our marshal led us into the Briefing Room. As we oathed to play fair, play smart, and give it our all, we realized we were literally two feet taller than any of our opponents.

Amidst The Player's Code

This is when it came to our attention that we were totally crashing Sophia’s twelfth birthday party. Before entering the arena, we did our best to look less intimidating by taking this really terrible.

Lee clearly brought the smiles for our outing.

Once we got into the maze, we ran atop the fort – the perfect location for attack. The smoke, black lights, and eery music set the scene, and it all began. Twelve-year-old girls swarmed us periodically, making themselves perfect targets as we manned our fort. There was a lot of shrieking and giggling from the birthday bunch.

Playing nice at Sophia's party.

The best surprise of the entire experience was the awesome code names our opponents chose. MRS. BIEBER, CHCLTCREAM, GEKOLOVER, BUCKWHEAT, and PIGGY put up some good competition.


DAVIDBOWIE for the win.

Instead of ruining a wedding this year, we may have accidentally ruined a twelve-year-old’s birthday party. Regardless, Sophia’s birthday party was a blast! We fled the scene to hang out with these cool kids.

And they all lived happily ever after.
