If you have never been laser tagging, please go as soon as you can! It’s sooo fun! 🙂 We went for my cousin’s birthday today, and let me tell you, I felt like a kid again, and I’m pretty sure I acted like one too! Our party consisted of about 12 kids and 5 adults, and it’s pretty safe to say that the adults were more competitive than the kids. How do I know this? Three of the top five scores belonged to one of the adults. LOL! We played two 20 minute games, and I was not in the top 10 for either. Let me show you how I did…
Game one wasn’t the best for me…I scored 23 out of 24. My “shoot and run” strategy didn’t serve me so well!
I restrategized for Game 2 and ranked 11th. 🙂 I used a “hide and shoot” strategy. For those of you who decide to try this fun game, I highly recommend this strategy!
All the fun this afternoon got me thinking about my birthday parties growing up. Birthday parties used to be such a big deal. Most of mine were slumber parties, which meant 5-7 girls all hyped on sugar running and dancing all around our basement. Like I said, so much fun!!! My favorite memory is from my own 10th birthday when my friends and I acted out our own version of Aladdin (one of my favorite movies to this day)!
Anyways, I digress…check out the birthday boy’s birthday cake.
Vanilla cake with fresh strawberry filling is starting to become one of my favorites. It’s like a strawberry shortcake cake. 🙂
After a lunch of pizza and cake, we all wanted some Indian comfort food. My aunt made some khichidi. Khichidi is a wonderful combination of rice, potatoes, onions, carrots, peanuts, and spices all cooked together in a pressure cooker. The rice is topped with a spicy yogurt curry. My description does not do this dish any justice, and it’s a bit complicated to make, so I don’t have the recipe down yet. No worries though…once I get the chance, I will sit down with my mom or aunt and jot it down, so I can share! In the meantime, here are some pics of dinner.
What are some of your favorite birthday memories?
