Here's the story. (you can skip to the pictures if you want)
Lizzy, Recah, and I told Anna that we wanted to go to Latta Plantation for lunch and a hike. We wanted to have some "girl time". So, that's what Anna thought we were going to do for her birthday.
After church on Sunday, Recah and Anna left to go buy chips for our lunch. As soon as they were gone, everyone that was invited to the surprise party left and met at Lizzy's house. Lizzy's parents let us borrow their canoes, so we hooked them up. Then we all carpooled to Latta.
Meanwhile, Anna thought Lizzy and I had gone to Lizzy's house to get stuff to make sandwiches, and that we were going to meet at Latta.
When the "party people" got to Latta, we drove to the canoe place. Lizzy called Recah to tell her how to get there. What's funny was, Recah and Anna got to Latta before us, and were sitting at the visitor place. We drove right past them on our way to the canoe place, but Anna didn't see us. Recah kept her distracted.
Anyway, when Recah and Anna drove to the canoe place, we all hid around a turn in the road. We stood there and said "Surprise!" when they came around the turn. Anna was so surprised! =)
