Gettin our Paintball On!

Someday I won’t be able to go paintballing, today is NOT that day!

I was kinda freaking out about this one; I am pooped from the rest of the activities we’ve done this week, I don’t exactly get a kick out of unnecessary pain and running around for 5 hours in 80+ degree heat wearing several layers aren’t normally my ingredients for a great time.  As Brian Tracy says though, “You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”  I’m so happy that I pushed myself into it though because it was of course a great time!  The best part is that I got to share this experience with phenomenal people whom I love and adore.  We had  an amazing Grandpa having a blast and schooling us all in the process, three parents letting loose and keeping up with their kids, 3 teen girls being amazing sports and tough beyond their fears and 3 teen boys going all out yet remaining total gentlemen.  We have a few injuries, several funny stories and many memories that will last a lifetime!  I was so tired and happy afterward I couldn’t have cared less that I smelled like a sweaty locker room, was dressed in sweats and a button up shirt borrowed from a teenage boy and had hair full of greasy paint when I took the kids to a sit down dinner.  What tickled me was that my 14 year old daughter was having so much fun that she laughed at me, but wasn’t the least bit embarrassed by my appearance. 😉  Today was a hit(well many hits actually :P)!
