Marked Paintball!

Gabe and Esther decided that as part of their birthday celebration, they would like to go paint-balling.  We invited some of our oldest friends and our super tough-princess-warrior-cousins.  It was a toal blast and we officially have the toughest, aesomeest friends and family.  Marked paintball was super accommodating and went out of their way for us.  
We are so thankful for them.
