Today we went to Grace’s Birthday party. When we got to her house, we gave her our gift, then got into our groups for our version of Amazing Race. The groups were:
-Cherry(me), Jenna, and Lily
-Rose, Luna, and Alice
-Grace and Adalia
-Ashlynn, April, and Deniz
The first thing we had to do was someone had to put a shower cap on, spray shaving cream on it, and another person had to throw popcorn and hopefully stick on the shaving cream. My group finished it third, and got our next clue. We had to run to Booster Juice, and drink a disgusting thing that Grace’s dad would buy us. We got there third, and then drank it quickly. It was disgusting! It was the flavour they put into the Chai Tea juice, but ONLY the flavour. No water or anything! We received our next clue which was to find the brightest lipstick and put it on. Jenna put it on because it couldn’t be the person that drank the thing. We went to Body Shop and found a pink-ish red-ish lipstick and smudged it on her lips. Then we went to Tim Hortons, which was where Grace’s dad was. The next thing we had to do was sing loudly Happy Birthday to Grace right in front of Tim Hortons. A guy was very annoyed and even said Shut Up to us, but we didn’t care. Our next clue was to run to Grace’s house, and a blind-folded person had to feed someone Baby Food. I had to feed Jenna the baby food, but she couldn’t eat it. Then Adalia and Grace’s team finished the last clue, which was to go to the park and find a ribbon and bring it back, so they won. Then Grace’s parents told us we didn’t have to do it because my team were slow runners and there was already a champion, so we came 3rd because the other team didn’t even know where the park was.
After, Grace’s parents ordered pizza and so we decided to play hide and seek. After a few rounds, the pizza came. So we ate our cheese pizzas, and then went outside to play. That’s when the Henna lady came to do Henna on us, so we went back in where Grace’s parents gave us numbers, and I was number two. Grace went first. Then it was my turn. I asked for a cherry design combined with another design. She told us to wait for the design to dry, and to make it pretty, she added some sparkles. After about 30 minutes, it will dry and eventually crumble off. The ink will stain on our skin and will turn into a brown-ish orangy colour, then into a darker brown.
When everyone’s turn was done, Mackenzie, Grace’s friend, arrived. We went outside to the park to play some hide and go seek tag, but we grew tired of it, so we played freeze tag.
We returned back to her house because it was almost 8, which was when most people had to leave. My dad gave me permission to leave at 9. We watched a bit of Moana, then the rest of us went on a walk. We brought scooters, bikes, even a long board! Ashlynn taught me how to ride it on the way back. I also got to ride the bike and the scooter.
