For weeks, I spent so much time and energy planning everything from location and food to games and teams. There was one thing I didn't count on though, after planning an outdoor party, and that was rain. Yes, it poured that day so we had to change everything. Yet, it still went really well and I had so much fun!
Originally, we were spending the day at the park and I had a photo scavenger hunt written as well as a few other activities. Then on the morning of the party, we had to change. Frantically, we wrote a new photo scavenger hunt that could be done at the local shopping center. We were going to do that, then ferry everyone back to our house for the rest of the time.
The scavenger hunt was so fun. Divided into four teams, we had a list of photos and had to do as many as we could in an hour. We took the most hilarious photos ever! There were so many challenges or poses to photograph and some included asking strangers to join in...
Their team name was all their initials put together.
The A Team
Team Blue Clouds
For once the team with the birthday girl won!!
Here's just a taste of the fun and craziness involved...

One photo was all your team in the air at once...Toyota Jump! It's actually a lot harder than it sounds...

YMCA in the food court. That was rather embarrassing...
|I guess you more call this one ACMY :)|

One challenge was re-enacting a famous painting, with extra points if the judges could guess what painting it was. Any ideas what these two are??
This challenge was to act out a scene from Shakespeare... such fun!

The last challenge was to take the craziest photo you could. Several teams tried...
|But this one won...bet you can guess why. Crazy or what?!?!|
And here's my awesome cake. It says 'Happy Birthday India'.
I had such fun and am so grateful to all my friends for coming, especially those who came all the way from Brisbane. This is a party I will remember forever!
