major nerf gun war || summer reading party

Monday, August 08, 2016

(so these photos are completely unrelated to this post but yeah).

There were many options at our summer reading party--such as, a bouncy house, games, obstacle course and...nerf guns.

I don't know about you but what's better than running around in your library after hours with 50 other kids and teens shooting each other with Nerf guns. I mean, COME ON? The bucket full of ammo was about 5 gallons. I kid you not. Everywhere you looked on the ground you could pick some up. *whispers* it was epic. SHOOTING AT STRANGERS IS THE BEST. lolol

Halfway through they brought the pizza out (which I didn't end up eating. Yes, I know. too much adrenaline). And then, they had the drawings.

So neither Julia and I won anything this year--but I think 2 hours of nerf gun warring was totally worth it.

The only bruise I got was on my hand, (yes, seriously), I put my hand up to shield myself and got shot. Not to mention the fact that for the past two days since I can barely walk--let alone walk up and down stairs.

BUT IT WAS WORTH IT.

i will never look at the library the same again.


have you ever experienced a major nerf gun war?
what are your summer reading parties like?

    'SHOOTING AT STRANGERS IS THE BEST' you do realize how concerning that sounds out of context, don't you? ;P

  2. That sounds like great fun! One time I got shot in the eye by a Nerf gun, and the kid was like a foot away from me. I've kinda had a phobia of them since. Our old library would do a sleepover for the teens....which I think is just a little creepy. NEVER DID THAT. We haven't been able to check out the library in our new town yet...sad....I know. And you think with it being a mile bike ride, we already would have....BUT, I think I'm painting my room this week:) So things are getting done in the new house:). And then we'll have time to relax and read some books:)

    1. oouuuchh. Sometimes, when you were really close to someone you could just stare at each other for a minute then give a respectful 'I-won't-shoot-you-if-you-dont-shoot-me' kind of look. lol!!

      uhh. ONLY A BIKE RIDE AWAY. GET OVER THERE THAT IS SO COOL. oohh, what color are you painting you room?

    2. Haha!!

      Yes, only a bike ride....But in this heat...lol. I rode up to the post office the other day and it was the hottest time of the day too! Blah. I'm painting it Repose Gray. I'm so nervous about it turning out to be blue or purple..eeeeek. But I love gray!

    1. Off topic, but I saw this post: http://the-introverted-extrovert.blogspot.com/2016/03/me-sarcastic-prints-from-pinterestland.html and your sister's on the same topic, so I have a couple of questions about those snapfish square prints. ;)

      First, when you get your free 100 4 by 6 prints, or you order photos of any size, if the photos you chose aren't that size, are you able to adjust them before ordering so that you capture what you want of the photo? So like it doesn't position itself automatically and the part of the photo you wanted to keep is cut out. (hope that made sense??)

      Second, would you recommend gloss or matte finish?

      Third, with those free 100, do you have to use those immediately or can you save them for future prints?

      Sorry for all that. xD I have a new bedroom now, plus an epic desk upstairs in the homeschool room, so I wanted to get some of these for decorations but wanted to clarify a few things before signing up. THEY'RE JUST SO ADORABLE.

    2. Okay, so yes--once you upload them all you can adjust the photos (they will show you where they will be cropped). They will also let you know when the photos might turn out a bit blurry (which aren't the worst).

      I've gotten both gloss and matte--and if you are stringing them on your wall I'd recommend matte so you don't get this half shine on them and they look a little more pinteresty that way I think.

      You know, I actually don't know--I never ordered my 100 free prints because I just got a coupon for a ton of square prints. You could look it up..but I really don't know. sorry!

      oohhhh, that sounds super cool. Prints are totally the best--I use my own pics and also stuff from pinterest. :D :D

      oh, and when you get the free prints I'm not sure if free shipping is included. If not, it could be around $3-5. Let me know if you have any more questions! :D

      Delete
    3. Thanks so much, Sarah! I'm really looking forward to decorating with them. :D Yeah, I saw that shipping costs a bit, but it's not much, and the prints are free, so... :P

      Thanks again! Sorry for the super long-and-rambling comment. :P

  7. Nerf guns in a library?! That is SO cool. My reading parties are self-contained XD I usually reward myself with chocolate and then try to locate another book. It's been a long time since I've done an official reading party unless you count the Twitter Readathon I just participated in this weekend. I got a spa day with friends and the Olympics after that one ^.^

  9. Nerf guns are the best. When my older brother moved out I stole his massive collection of them. They're sitting in the top of my cupboard. Maybe I should bribe my sister into a nerf gun war.
    Beautiful photos. They just keep getting more and more beautiful.
