On my 8th birthday I woke up to see balloons hanging from the roof of the caravan. I waited a tiny bit then I peeked through the curtains and saw something else hanging from the roof. It was a little fluffy pink giraffe with ginormous sparkly green eyes from Mum and Dad. It came with a tag on it saying “May name is Strawberry”. I got out of the bed and there was a card from Mum and Dad that had candles inside that had lights, and there was a hole that you had to blow on to blow them out, and the card started singing happy birthday to me! It even said “happy birthday dear Mia”! I also got a card from Pma and Grandpa but I can hardly read Pma’s writing so I had to ask Dad to read it to me. He could hardly read it either so Mum read it to us!
For breakfast we had pancakes, and we had a funny face competition. I made a face that had spikey strawberry hair, blue blueberry eyes, pink yoghurt cheeks, banana for a mouth and a strawberry nose. Dad’s one looked more like a bird. It was a strip of yoghurt with two blueberries and a strawberry!
After our morning and school for me and Mum, we went to Peregian Beach. Mum did 40 cartwheels along the beach, and I got a mangrove stick and wrote the number of cartwheels in the sand. There were a lot of blue bottles around and I nearly stepped on one.
There was a big bouncy cushion at the caravan park we were staying at, and we jumped on that for a long time. After that we went in the pool for a bit because we were quite hot.
I designed dinner of honey soy chicken wrapped in a Japanese omelette with veges. Mum agreed it was delicious! There was a movie on that night, outdoors, at the caravan park. It was supposed to be Garfield, but the disc wasn’t working, so they put on Open Season 2. It was a really funny movie.
I felt very happy about having a great birthday in Noosa. My favourite part of the day was probably bouncing on the giant cushion, especially when Mum and Dad got on and double bounced us!
Bye for now,
