My Ry-guy turned 8 this week! At our new school, they have a Spirit Rock that you can have painted for your birthday. We went the night before his birthday and painted it yellow, and a neighborhood friend painted the design for us. Ryan loved his Nerf themed rock!
I brought whole fruit Trader Joes Popsicles to his class and ate lunch with him and two buddies.
Then after school, we had a Nerf Party! We had 9 boys, Molly, and my sister Rachel for the big celebration!
This was such a fun party to prep for! When the guests arrived, we had them each grab a nerf gun, safety goggles, bullets, and a bullet pouch. These were the party favors.
All of the food we served was orange and blue, except for the pizza.
Chad was our Range Officer and got the boys their gear.
They decorated their pouches and labeled all of their equipment.
This was Molly's favorite part of the whole party....well that and the cheese balls.
Once everyone had arrived, Chad gave the boys instructions and introduced them to the target shooting practice drills.
The first was the Tin Can Challenge.
The second challenge was to knock the ping pong balls off of the bottles.
The third was target practice. One of the boys got a bullseye!
Once the boys were done perfecting their aim, they headed out for a 4 on 4 battle.
