my best friends birthday

my best friends birthday was yesterday. we (as her friends) had been planning for weeks as to what to do for her birthday, but nothing seemed good enough. finally, one of our friends came up with the idea to go boating and get her a cake for lunch! 
in wind symphony we gave her a dozen balloons. we attached them to her chair and after class was over we sucked helium and sang happy birthday. it was a grand time. and we ate lunch which consisted of cake and more cake.

right after school we loaded up in the boat and headed out to deer creek to go boating! it was so unbelievably cold and even with the wet suits we were freezing. and let me just say the tubing with contacts in is no bueno. but alas, it is possible to ride a tube even when you're injured! thank goodness, cause I would've not been able to do anything. 

okay lemme just tell you about this girl. ive known her for about a year and a half, but we really got close about 6 months ago. holy cow she is smart and funny and we are practically the same person which makes spending time together so super fun. I adore her and look up to her oh so much. and so happy 17 years of being on this planet my friend!
