For my 17th birthday, I had a party at the park near our house. 13 of my friends came, and we had SO much fun! I had never had a big party like that before, but I'm so glad I did. We had to change parks last minute, because we found out that the one we had originally planned on going to was having their 10th anniversary celebration at exactly the same time. It worked out though, because we ended up under a beautiful tree, next to a field, and across from the lake. The weather was beautiful, and it was in the low 70s that afternoon. We played games, talked, and just enjoyed being together. I love my friends! It was such a special day.
Here we are! David and Kendra couldn't come until later on, so they didn't make it for this picture.
We played Ultimate Frisbee. I had never actually played before. I'm not at all athletic, but I managed! It was really fun.
My friend Joelle has more pictures on her blog.
