We hosted another marshmallow gun war on Saturday night and it was a blast! Tons of food, lots of chatting, and some serious battling.
The first war, which was really fun, had 24 people and we went through four bags of marshmallows. This one had 49 people and we went had to stop battling when we used up our fifteenth bag of marshmallows!! It was amazing! I think some of the warriors would have gone all night if we could have kept the marshmallows comin'.
The award for "best dressed" would go to the Wagner family, who showed up with black and silver guns and wearing black shirts with camo pants. I wonder what the neighbors thought when they saw eight people dressed for battle and toting weapons come piling out of their van?
The award for "most violent" would be a tie between most of the twenty-something males, though I was personally assaulted by Chris, who shot me in the mouth. I'm not bitter about it though. Seriously. It was actually pretty funny, though my lip stung all night.
The award for "most enthusiastic little child" would go to Kiana (Did I spell that right?) or Kindra, I keep switching their names in my head, who spent most of the evening warning Nick that she was going to shoot him, then laughing after she fired her gun at him.
The award for "we're not threatened by the younger generations" goes to the Jack and Orma. I'm so glad you guys showed up!!
The award for "we don't really know anyone, but we're coming anyway" goes to several people who just jumped in, chatting over dinner and shooting at strangers, making some new friends in the process
I've dedicated a whole album on our Picasa site to pictures of the war zone, so click here to see them. It's a little tricky to get great pics of people who are moving and shooting at you, but the not-so-great shots will still give you a feel for how chaotic and fun the whole thing was and the good pics will just be good pics. I also took a couple movies, which are posted below. They're short and a little random, but you'll hear lots of laughter!!
Thanks to everyone who came (and you can click the group shot to get a better view of who those people are). We look forward to hosting "Marshmallow Gun War - Third Edition" sometime in the future!!
