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!
