"Amara," I asked. "Will you see what time it is?"
She looked up at the clock and said, 5:00, I mean 6:00, that clocks an hour ahead of time, right? Because it says 5:00."
Yeah, our parents didn't change it when daylight savings rolled around. But at the same time, six in the morning? The sun was up, birds were chirping, and trucks were driving out on the street. I told her to go check digital time, because although she can read analog fine, I wanted to double check it. So she did go out there.
Let's skip over my moment of surprise when I found out it was 6:00 am and just head over to breakfast.
Special occasion so I got to have toaster strudels, juice, fruit, biscuits, and milk for breakfast! It was so good! Then I brushed my hair and we watched an episode of Doctor Oakley, Yukon Vet. Then we played outside.
Then we shopped, and I got new riding boots and a hat. Those were EXPENSIVE!!!
Mom had said that we would go on a surprise safari after lunch. I was blindfolded in the car, and when I opened my eyes, I saw that we were at Shiloh's house. Now, we take riding lessons there, and I ride Grey. I learned that he is 23 years old!
|I thought I was crazy enough to let my mom buy me expensive birthday boots, but now |
I'm attempting to pet a horse and dog at the same time.
After horseback riding, we went to the Hideout Steakhouse. It was fun, I got steak on a rock like always, and I had fun!
|Mom ordered the Lava Bowl, and when it came, it looked like lava.|
|Mom brought up that it was my birthday, and when we were about to leave,|
the waitress said I could have a free dessert! I chose cheesecake.
After that, we went to the ribbon cutting of the new Aquatic Center in Roosevelt.
After that, we had
cake and ice cream ice cream cake. It was Oreo, and was delicious. Then guess what? Our friends got to come over. And THEN guess what? A knock at the door and some missionaries came and party-crashed! It was fun hanging out with them. After everyone left, we watched Maleficent. BEST. BIRTHDAY. EVER.
And we're done with that. Whew! WHAT???
The day after my birthday, we got our hair cut. So cute! Kim Davis cut it. She's our neighbor, and she's so awesome!
