11-year olds and Nerf guns...

My youngest turned 11. he got two parties this year, one with family including cousins and another with his school mates and neighbourhood playmates. He makes friends easily.

And of course where boys are concerned, the in thing now is NERF. So you can imagine, that's all they were talking about and bothering with from start to finish... fixing up their guns, attachments, bullets, extensions and who would have thought there were so many  different varieties. I was concerned they would mix up their toys, but oh no... I'm told 'chill' 'no worries' ....

So I left them to it and they had great wild time in the park engrossed in their Nerf war..
 Of course my living room looked like a battle zone with parts, and bullets and bags not to mention food and cups and drinks by the time we were half way through the party.
And what kind of party would it be without FAST FOOD!.

It is now almost coming to the close of my evening.

And for the family I hope they enjoyed my special treat of crabs.
I hope my son had a memorable birthday, and his friends had fun too and me I look forward to my bed soon.

Thank God for the lovely weather today.

My little boy is only four but I haven't heard of nerf guns. Maybe they are not popular in Ireland? Or maybe it's just that I only have to get toys for four year olds at this point in time! :)
