At my son’s school, the administration and parents are always organizing various events.
The most recent daddy/son event was laser tag that involved all the grades.
My son was very excited to participate in laser tag and would frequently ask me if the laser tag would be this weekend.
Finn kept saying, “Dad, how many days till laser tag?”
Last Sunday, we finally went to play laser tag.
When we get there to sign up, there are two different time slots given to us.
We then walked into this dark, warm, cramped room, where we were given our laser tag instructions.
At this moment, Finn and I discussed our strategy.
We then were given these heavy packs that slid over our head. There were sensors all over the pack.
If the laser beam hit any of the sensors, your gun and pack would be disabled for 10 seconds and it would be considered a “kill.”
Then we walked into the space where the laser combat would take place.
It was dark and had multiple levels. There were neon, glow in the dark tape, to illuminate the maze.
Finn and I began to run and we were like commando soldiers.Hiding behind walls, peeking around corners, climbing on top of structures to get a better vantage point.
I was constantly getting hit and I was not sure where all of these hits were coming from.
The whole session lasted 15 minutes.
After the session we were given our score cards. We were able to see who we hit, and who got us.
When I looked at mine, I noticed Finn had hit me 10 times. The most out of all the people there.
We had a great time, though, and he was able to spend time with some of his friends.
I love sending time with Finn.
