Kaeden's Birthday

My mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, sister, brother-in-law, niece, nephew and aunt & uncle came over yesterday to celebrate Kaeden's birthday. I always love spending time with my family. We have such a great time together! We ended up having a marshmallow fight with our new miniature marshmallow guns! My sister had to shield her self from my dad's powerful blasts!

NERF Gun Party

We had Kaeden's 8th birthday party yesterday. We invited about 10 of Kaeden's closest friends over for a NERF gun party. All the boys brought their NERF guns and nerf darts. We had 3 dads stay and play too! I have to admit, it was a fun party! The boys were just boys and had a great time. We played capture the flag, having 2 teams (red and blue) and each team had a base. If a kid was hit above the shoulders, they had to go back and touch their base (sawhorse) and then
they were back into the action. If anyone got hit with a dart, they had to go back and touch their base and they were back into play. The object was to try and get the opponents flag without being hit. We used our whole yard, front and back.

Towards the middle of the party we ate and had a break by each boy making miniature marshmallow guns. The boys were awesome. They all helped pick up the marshmallows scattered around the yard. I found the simple directions for the marshmallow guns here. They were about a $1 to make a piece, a perfect take home gift for each friend!
