mason's birthday

Today is Mason's 6th birthday! Time is just flying by.

The family went to Laser Quest on Saturday to celebrate. While Mason is actually too young (and small) to play the laser tag game, they let us if one of us adults carried his pack for him. So Penny and I took turns wearing the pack (which a vest with lighted targets for other players to shoot lasers at) while he shot the laser.

It turned out to be a lot of fun. When Penny took her turn with Mason, I played by myself. I worked up quite a sweat as I run up, down and through the maze of corridors in the game room. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I ate lunch with Mason today at his school. I was surprised to see how quickly they move those kids through the food line; we didn't really get to eat together. It was more like a case of saying hello, inhaling some turkey, and sending him on his way. But he was glad I came, and I was also glad I came.

Since we've been slow in planning a birthday party for Mason, we're going to have a sports party for him at the local Sports Warehouse in a couple weeks. The employees there will lead the kids in various games, including soccer and volleyball.
