Birthday Party~

We had a great party! We played survivor and I divided them into 2 teams.(pink & black) The first challenge was to run to the pool and they each had to swim a lap. Then run back to the park and put up their flag. The next one they had to find 4 flags of their color that we buried in the sand box. One team found three and the other found two. I guess we buried them pretty good! Another challenge was to throw or roll as they later found out water balloons into a hula hoop without popping them. The team with the most balloons unpopped wins. My favorite challenge was the food one. Here we had seven things for them to try. If they tried it and kept it down they got a point for each tried food. On the menu was oysters, sardines, real pickled pig feet, chocolate covered insects(actually dried fruit pieces), shark eggs(small pickled onions), blended fish guts(spicy V-8), and dog food(beef stew) We washed out the cans and put the stew in. The hardest thing was for them to eat the dog food. Some tried them all and other 1 or 2 things. We ate some cake which were really huge pieces and then a cake fight.Good thing there was a water fight to follow to clean off that cake! Everyone said it was the best party they had been to! We had a few more challenges including a quiz on which the teams had to answer questions about the birthday girl. Individual challenges included standing on one foot on a stool & finding different colors of nature. We grilled out and then the party was over. Now a day of rest! Here are some pics!

Tag! You're It!

Hmmm..........I somehow got tagged twice. Thanks Kate and Coni! Here are the rules....
So this is how it works. I must post 7 random things about me and then tag others to do the same. Sound fair enough, right? These are the rules…. each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.

1. I hate eating out at places. I am too shy and don't like to be around alot of people.OK! OK! I am a people phobe! (lol)

2. I feel all alone when my husband is working overseas. People say I am strong but I feel weak!

3. I absolutely love chinese! Any stirfry! Except certain vegetables (onions & peppers)

4. I am sad my oldest graduates this coming year. I wonder where the time has gone!

5. I feel I am a skinny girl trapped in a fat girl's body! ;) Oh some day I will get rid of her!

6. My dream is to be a published designer. I know I need to submit to get a chance. I haven't submitted a thing!

7. If I could go back into time the one thing I would change would be to go to college to be a doctor. So then, people who couldn't afford medical coverage and prescriptions could. I would have a walk in free day where everything would be covered by me. I feel I am too old to go back and finish now.

I am tagging Jen,, Holly ,Mikala
I can't find any others I know to tag! They already all have been tagged by someone else. :(
