Pool Party

One sunny hot day on September 4th and we were going to have our birthday pool party. It was at a pool called Woodside. We got there ten minutes early. Ten minutes later everyone started to arrive. First William arrived than Scott arrived than Ben two minutes later everyone was here. So everyone started to jump in the pool. We all went to the diving boards first. We did all these poses like X marks the spot and old man and baby and all sorts of other poses. Then we went to the waterslides. Scott was trying to chase us but we were too speedy! We went head first and on our butts and on our backs. There is a blue slide and a green slide. The blue slide is very turny. The green slide is much shorter than the blue slide and the green slide only has one turn in it. Next, we went to the twenty-four inched water. Ben’s dad got us two balls to play with. We played capture the balls. Our team started with one ball and Ben’s team started with another. Two minutes later somehow our team got there ball. Ben started to chase me because I had a ball. I kept running up the stairs, getting out of the pool and jumping back in on the other side of the pool. Now Ben has been chasing me for six-hundred seconds! I was getting tired so I passed the ball to my friend Scott. He passed it back to me. Then Ben started to chase me again! I ran up the stairs and… KA-BAM! I fell on the ground and started to cry. My foot, my knee, my other foot and my elbow were bleeding bad. Mom said it was time for lunch. I got a little bit happier. There was pizza and fruits and green vegetables. I had pizza, strawberries, and purple, red and blue grapes. I loved the pizza but I really loved the strawberries!!! After everyone was done we went to play four square. I started ace. I said “old school.” Old school is where you hit the ball with your hands. I got Perry out. Then I got out. So I went back to have some more pizza. But there was no more pizza. Dad said “the chefs gave us pepporoni pizza instead of cheese pizza. So the pizza would be here in fifteen minutes. So I went back to the four square. But there were these huge guys at ace and they were getting all of us out. So I got in and then got out again. I said to myself “ They are very good.” So I went to be umpire with Monica. Then the huge guys got out and Matthew was ace. After Matthew got out everyone started to jump back in the pool except me. I didn’t want to fill the pool with blood. Dad said that the pizza was here. So I went to have another piece of pizza. There was only four slices left because everyone loved it. I asked Mom “,why are Mr. and Mrs. Bukavitch here?” Markus was here to. Dad asked him if he would like a piece of pizza. He said “Yes.” Now there are there slices of pizza left. I had the last piece. I had three slices of pizza total. Then Mom said ’’ cupcake time,” Everyone rushed in for cupcakes. Everyone started singing the Happy Birthday song for us. Our cupcakes had a number 8 candle on it. Me, Matthew and Monica got to have seconds and the other children did not. We got twenty four presents. I went upstairs with Matthew to play some video games. I got in third place in this racing car game with Matthew and he got in fourth. Then we played ping-pong. I said “whoever gets 13 points first wins.” Matthew said “Okay.” We kept tieing and tieing but then… WHAM. Matthew won. He was proud of himself. I said “darn.” We played one more game and I won. So we went over to the pool table. We got to use the pool sticks. It was very diffulcult to me. It seemed like it was easy for Matthew. He scored the first three balls in. I did not score a ball in until Matthew gave me an easy shot. I got it in. But it was kind of hard to me. I looked out of the window and saw that everyone was at the tennis court. Then I told Matthew “EVERYONE IS AT THE TENNIS COURT.” We ran as fast as we could to the tennis court and it was already 7:20 pm and the party started at 3:30 pm. I and Matthew were captains. I picked the two best players. I let Matthew have the rest of the players. We started to play kickball and my team got to kick first. We said that the mercy rule was 8.
So we started to play kickball and I was the first one to kick on my team. I got a base kick. I leaded off. They were wacky enough to throw the ball at me. It missed me by one foot. I went to second base. Next Natalie was up. She got a home run She said that it was 15-0 by the second inning. She had to go on Matthew’s team. We were kind of sad so we did our best to try to win. At the fourth inning it was 23-17. They were catching up fast. By the seventh inning it was a tie, 26-26. It was our turn to kick and I was up. There was a person on third base. I kicked it with a large KA-BOOM. Up, up, up went the ball then down with a large… KA-BOOM. We won! The game ended at 27-26! Matthew was fine with it. My feet were hurting. The ball was one of the hard balls at Bingham Farms school. It was a happy birthday for everyone!
