MARSHMALLOW GUN WAR - FOURTH EDITION
When we moved to our apartment we vowed to keep the MGW tradition going. However, we totally slacked and summer is basically over, so we busted out our first one of the year tonight. Better late than never, right?
We no longer have a yard of our own, so we headed down to a local park for this battle. We stuffed our faces first, potluck style, then got down to business. I'll post more pictures on our Picasa site tomorrow night, but this post shows you who was there.
The "rapid fire assault" award goes to Noah, who modified his gun to make shooting about 20 marshmallows at a time much easier.
The "bonus grandparents" award goes to Jack & Orma, who hung out with Luke for much of the battle, until Morgen kidnapped him.
The "kick the boss out" award goes to Sheena, Sachi, and Laura, who took over the loading station and camera so that I could participate for the first time. As a sidenote, I have fun doing the loading station and have no complaints about never fighting in previous wars, but it was fun to get out in the battle zone tonight.
The "thanks for the invite, let me introduce myself" award to goes to Michael, who tagged along with friends of friends. Though we send the e-vite out to a bunch of people, it's really an open invitation event, so it's always fun to see who shows up that we've never met before.
The "paybacks are much worse than the inital offense" award goes to Tim, who likes to do close-range, rapid fire assaults with a large lung capacity on girls who shoot one or two marshmallows at him that he can barely feel. Not that I experienced that or anything.
The "wars matter more than sleep" award goes to Mike, who had been up since 1:00am and battled anyway.
The "til death do us part" award goes to the Casey clan, who have showed up to all four battles.
If you want to see the rest of the pictures, then head over here.
I think it would be fun to crank one more of these things out in the next week or two. The battle would have to start by 6:00 to have enough time to play before it gets dark. Anyone up for it? Next Saturday? The following one? Don't think we could pull it off much later than that unless we did it in the afternoon.
