Then We Got Schooled by Some 6 Year Olds
John happened to be off on my birthday so I took off as well so we could hang out. I dragged him out of bed and headed to Marburger Orchard to pick strawberries. He wore red to attract the strawberries. Later we hung out with a cow on the side of the road on our way to Becker Vineyards for some wine tasting. It used to be $5 for tasting. Now it's $10, but at least you get a glass. On our way into Fredericksburg for lunch we passed by a camel farm. John threw some camel gang signs and ignited what we thought was a camel gang fight as two started chasing eachother around. Only then they started to do this: Maybe they were making up after their fight? We grabbed lunch and a beer at the Fredericksburg Brewing Company where we spent our 1 year anniversary. That night we had dinner downtown at Texas de Brazil. They have a wine aerialist that was pretty cool. My coworkers were nice enough to decorate my office while I was out. Next year, they better do 29 + 1. On Sunday I had lunch with friends at the Boardwalk on Bulverde. It's a place where all these gourmet food trucks can congregate. The food is amazing! It was too windy for the candles, but Julie lit a lighter under my face and scared me half to death. It was pretty warm out and the cake melted a bit, but tasted delicious! After lunch we headed over to play some laser tag. Before our games we had some arcade fun. They have a viewing room where you can see the playing field. Finally it was time to play. Our first round was against another kid's birthday party. That kid was a SMACK TALKER! Do you know how hard it is to not talk smack back to a 6 yr old? Hard. And then.....they schooled us on the playing field. They (blue team) beat us (red team) by 50,000 points. Those little kids ran around in little groups and would attack you all at once. The birthday boy would pop out at you and yell, "Die Sucker!" So the second round. We were ready. We knew the field, we knew how to take out the groups of kids. We were ready and we annihilated them. In you face 6 year olds! 100,000 points in your face! Of course, we're about as mature as a bunch of 6 year olds. We may start up a laser tag league. Or at least do a lock in. Laser tag was FREAKING AWESOME! I don't think I've had so much fun in a really long time. Of course you sweat like never before and you have to be willing to kick some 6 year old's ass, but it's awesome.
