The Birthday Party
My favourite birthday party was yesterday. I had a great time.
When we woke up in the morning, we went to the cake shop to buy my birthday cake. It
was beautiful. It had the shape of a castle. I wanted to eat it before the birthday party
but I was patient and I didn't eat it.
In the afternoon, my cousins, my aunt and my uncle finally arrived. I was so happy. We
all sang Happy Birthday and after that we ate the cake. I also had a lot of presents.
This day was the best day of my life.
