Pairs Well With
I woke up the morning of the greatest day ever. I didn’t know it until later that day. It was my eighth birthday party and it is my first slumber party. Would you be excited?
It was a warm July morning when the best day of my life happened. I sprang out of my bed ready for my first sleepover party. My mom was down stairs cooking a delicious breakfast of eggs, bacon, and my favorite sausage. I ran down stairs in under one minute to smell the delicious scent. The bacon was juicy and crispy. The eggs were sizzling and were perfectly baked. Then there was the sausage. It was scrumptiously perfect in every way. After we all ate I got dressed in my favorite outfit and waited for my friends. The first to arrive was Emily. She looked really excited. As soon as we get upstairs, Natalie comes. She looked happy to be here. Again the same thing happened; Ashley comes once we get upstairs. She also looked excited. We were all ready to go mini-golfing for the night then get pizza. So we headed out to the golf place. When we got there, we chose our balls that were glow in the dark and a club. We started for the course. The holes were sort of easy and some were hard. We tried our best and on one hole the balls didn’t like us so we gave up after five tries. We finished the course in twenty minutes which isn’t that long. So, my mom gave us quarters to play at the arcade there. We had an air hockey match and I won. We exchanged our tickets for prizes and I got a popper. That is the little things you would flip and it would pop into the air. After we got the prizes we went back to my house for pizza. While we waited for the pizza we played hide and seek. My house can hide anyone if you try hard. When the pizza arrived we ate a lot of it. We must’ve had like four or five pieces. When we finished we got into our pajamas and watched TV on the couch. At 8 o’clock or so, we walked upstairs and went to bed. We actually did makeup and played Would You Rather. I was the first to go to sleep and I slept well. When I woke up the next morning, I smelled the sweet scent of my mom’s pancakes. They smelled like perfection on a plate. I tiptoed across my room and then raced down the stairs. I was ready to chow down when…
“Emma, wait for your friends to wake up first!” My mom yelled not to loud.
“Fine, but my stomach will want otherwise,” I respond with an annoyed voice.
So, I waited for my friends to wake up to dig in. They woke up a little after I did and we ate the delicious breakfast together. After we got dressed everyone’s parents came and they had to go. I couldn’t wait to see them in school in the fall.
I loved my party because I spent it with my friends. I had a wonderful time and I think the girls did too. I say the best way to spend a day is with your friends and family.
