Not Your Typical Thanksgiving Tradition

Each year on the day after our Thanksgiving feast, our family suits up in battle fatigues, and heads into the woods to run and hide and shoot at each other.
Paintball!!
It has become a family tradition..and one we look forward to each year.
Saturday's weather was perfect for the games.
We spent the afternoon hunting each other down and shooting each other....sounds rather brutal, but is all in good fun. We make up all sorts of games...capture the flag, defending the "fort", last man standing, manhunt, and more. The rest of the day is spent nursing our bruises, laughing and teasing each other about the great "hits" we got on each other.

this is what exhaustion looks like.....
