The birthday girl has big plans for her birthday party, yet it’s still 5 months, 3 weeks, 2 days, and 8 hours away. She wants it to be the best birthday party that she’s ever had. Her party plans soon become very extravagant. A few items she plans to have at her birthday party are 9,000 pink balloons, the tallest cake in the world, a magician, a parade, camel and elephant rides, and even fireworks. She even believes the President of the United States and the Queen of England will send her birthday cards. After months of planning, her birthday finally arrives but she doesn’t find everything on her list. However, she does discover pink balloons, tons of frosting, and the guests sing so loudly they must cover their ears. Her grand plans may not be at her party, but she’s still having the best birthday party ever. Of course, it’s never too early to start planning for next year.
