Aaron and Ethan Birthday Party Pics

As promised, here they are.  Again, it was a laser tag event, so not very much material to shoot in the dark.

We had the party at Lazer Zone in Glenview, Illinois.  The place doesn’t serve food, but has party rooms.  They suggest that everyone order food through their preferred pizza delivery company, Viccino’s.  To their credit, the pizza from Viccino’s was very good, and they offer a discount to Lazer Zone patrons.

On arrival, and after getting organized, guests have one Lazer Tag session, which is about 30 minutes or so.  First they view a training video, and then are fitted with the lazer tag gear (head gear, a light emitting “gun”, and a backpack that controls it all).  Then they enter the battle zone where they have recharge stations, bases to protect, and each other to tag with their “lasers” (really just lights).

After the first session, the pizza is delivered and everyone eats.  Then they go in to their second session.  Same as the first, only this time no training video.

Afterwards, we had cake in the same party room and then paid and left.  They cleaned up for us, and the whole event was managed very nicely by them.  We’d go back again.

Aaron Birthday Pics?

You might be wondering why we posted pictures of Justin and Ethan‘s birthday, but not Aaron’s.

Actually, Aaron and Ethan’s birthday party (one party for both) is this coming Sunday, at Laser Zone (a place that does laser tag) and although it’s generally a dark room that they play in, we will attempt to get some pictures and post them after the party.

AYSO Tri-Regional Tournament 2009

Even though the regular AYSO season is over, Aaron, ever the soccer player, played in the Tri-Regional Tournament today.  Each region is basically one city, so in theory it’s three cities competing against each other – but there were multiple teams from each city, so we ended up playing Highland Park twice and Peterson Park once.  In the end, every team ended up 1-1-1 (one win, one loss, one tie) and the goals scored determined the tie-breaker.  Each team from Highland Park one first and second place, and Skokie tied with Peterson Park for third.  Confused?  Just go look at the pictures.  Aaron plays a cross-divisional tournament in two weeks.

Justin & Aaron Buddy Baseball

Besides everything else going on, Justin and Aaron plays Buddy Baseball at MNASR (sort of a park district for special education kids.)  This has been running now for about four weeks, and it goes until the end of June.  Today we all went to watch, and I took a few pictures.

Happy Birthday, Ethan!

Ethan turns seven today.  He gets his choice of dinner – so he’s chosen to go to the District 73.5 picnic tonight, but we’ll take McDonald’s food there.  Then ice cream cake afterwards.
