Yesterday was Dad’s birthday and today is Kelly’s birthday. It was so nice to be together. Grandma, Auntie Mieko, and Aunt Sharon were there too. I love our family time so much. I love being able to celebrate someone’s life and getting to share life with them.
I’ve had some great birthday parties. For my 6th birthday we had a makeup and fashion show. One of my friends had an older sister who taught her how to properly apply makeup and so looked like a doll, while the rest of us looked like we’d lost a boxing tournament. Mom had gotten some really fancy dresses together and we all chose one to wear and model as we walked the “runway.”
Another year Dad put together a scavenger hunt of sorts. We split up into two teams and had a list of hints, and the answers were the name of a store. We had to go around and get signatures from employees within a certain amount of time. My team lost but we had a blast.
I love birthdays.
