My Ideal Birthday Party

If I were to have a perfect birthday party as a kid, it would be extremely memorable. Not to say that the parties I did have weren't memorable, but I know they could have been better. If I were to have the greatest birthday party at the age of 8, I would first have all my friends come over to my house and paint the walls different colors and designs. Then, we would all play several party games such as musical chairs, pin the tail on the donkey, etc. After we all got tired of playing games, we would sit in the living room and watch one of my favorite movies such as Pokemon or Rugrats while eating my favorite food; Chinese.
There would be several take out boxes with different entrees including my favorite: general Tso's chicken. After we were all stuffed with dinner, I would begin to open my presents. The items I really hoped to get were new barbies, jewelry, makeup, and music. Getting everything I could ever dream of having, I was very grateful for all the wonderful friends I have. Once presents were opened, we all went outside into my driveway and had an enormous silly string battle! We covered each other from head to two in that sticky colorful string and we were having a blast. Once the fight was over, we went back inside and warmed up with some ice cream and my favorite birthday cake; carrot. After all my friends left, I started getting ready for bed and couldn't stop thinking about how much fun I had at my birthday party and couldn't wait until next year's party!
