Birthday Pictures

First, Izzy snapped a picture of me when she came to pick me up and I opened the door.Then we put up some of the decorations that Izzy had made. They were added to the ones that I had already put up. The banners says "Happy Birthday Lee", and she made the hanging apples.

We took pictures of the decorations I had put up the night before.

Then we drove to pick up Travis, and I took a pic in the car on the way. I was determined to document everything that happened that day.

When we got to the Adventuredome, we saw this Spongebob standing outside of one of the attractions. We HAD to get a picture of him. Izzy wanted to me take advantage of his oddly phallic nose, but I declined.

Izzy and Drew had something to eat while we waited for Paul to show up. Izzy got pizza, and Drew got a hot dog.

Then Paul showed up, and we decided to start going on rides.

First we went on the log ride, and Travis sat out, but then I wanted to go on the pirate ship. (I was trying to work my way up to the bigger rides, and so was Izzy.)

Then me and Izzy went on the merry-go-round, because we had planned to do that so that we could take pics.

Then we went and rode on a ride called Chaos. We don't have any pics, but I can remember that it was a horrible ride. It spun around, up in the air, and the seats that you were in swung everywhere. They would swing upside-down, and rock really hard back and forth. Your face would end up really close to the floor, and you would be terrified.

After Chaos, me, Drew, and Paul went on Disko. That ride was actually fun for me. Me and Paul held up a whole conversation while we swung through the air.

Then we went to play carnival games. We played a bunch of different ones, and Paul won me a bunch of stuffed animals. We won Izzy a few too.

We played the magnet fishing game, and me and Paul both won stuffed animals. I was nice enough to trade in some of the ones that I won to get Izzy one of the big monkeys. Then I asked Paul to win me some little monkeys.

I also got this doggy!

We played the racing game, where you throw the balls into the holes.

I wound up with these stuffed animals after some other games we played:

Then we decided to play some of the ticket-dispensing arcade games. This is when my boyfriend came in REALLY handy. He's apparently amazingly, spectacularly good at that game where you have to hit the button at the right time to make the light hit "jackpot". He got 7 jackpots.

My final original amount. I got another 1000 after all these.

With my tickets, I got a really pretty glitter lamp.

I had 1000 tickets, and I didn't know what to do with them. We saw this little girl that only had 60 tickets, and she looked really disappointed. She was only 5 or 6. So we asked her to come over and pick out a stuffed animal she wanted. She picked a stuffed monkey that was as big as she was. We got it for her, and she left. Or we thought she did. She came back a second later and handed my dad 3 sweet tarts and said "Thank you!" It was so sweet.

Then I had 500 tickets left.

I wanted this adorable bear in a pink hoodie. I was actually short 50 tickets for this bear, so I asked drew if he'd go and pop a few quarters in that one machine and get me the 50. So what'd he do? He popped one quarter in and hit the jackpot first try. I was pretty freaking excited.

After we finished with the games, we decided to go on a couple more rides. We went on the log ride, and then we jumped on the rollercoaster called the Canyon Blaster. I was terrified of it originally, but when I was on the ride?

Yeah, I wasn't particularly amused or afraid. I was just kind of "eh".

Then we were tired and decided to just go home and enjoy that part of the party. This was us leaving the adventuredome.

First I gave them all their goodie bags, and they were pretty excited.

Izzy and I set up the table for the party while the boys played video games in my room.

Then we showed the boys the table, and they thought it was pretty neat.

Then we played the Twilight board game, which is actually a pretty crappy game. I wish it was better, but it just isn't. There's no real challenge.

Paul decided to grab me and give me my birthday spankings after I was "sassing" him.

I realize now that I have no butt, it's flat since I lost all the weight.

I hid behind Drew to avoid further spankings.

Then we all ate dinner, which I never got any pictures of, except a couple of Drew.

I thought this picture I accidentally took was pretty cool, the way the lights were warped.

Poor little Tiffany wanted her own place setting, and tried to make her own.

Izzy and Travis left because of their issues, and so we decided to have birthday cake and open presents.

Drew got me this really pretty Twilight blanket to snuggle up with.

He also got me this cute hat-shaped hair pin.

Izzy got me this.

My mom got me some clothes at Forever 21, and the New Moon poster from Hot Topic.

Drew and Paul played some games while I helped mom clean up from after the party.

We took Drew home, went to sleep, and that was my day.

It was a fun day, at least most of it. I was already past the drama before yesterday occured, but I'm already past it again. I lost a friend, but now I've gained more of a "burn nose". I know how to watch out for people. Now I'll be more careful who I let into my life.

I didn't realize that Paul is your biological father until after I read your other post below. Now you've got me curious because you call him Paul and refer to him as your biological father. So spill it spill it, do you have two dads? What's your story?

Sarah said...

Paul looks young! Great job on the whole theme, you know I am on Breaking Dawn already! Lovin' it! As far as Izzy, you live and learn. I find it funny that she takes diet pills and then orders pizza....wtf? lol.

Erin said...

You look like you had a blast! I definitely need to hit you up if I ever make it to Vegas! That was so sweet of you to give that little girl all those tickets! I remember being little and going to places like that and I would always be so impressed with my 400 tickets, you probably made her day!
