As you can see from the title, someone had a sweet sixteen! Well, that person would be me! 😃😆😏
So for my birthday I knew we were doing something, but didn’t know what it was. I was really excited though!
These lovely ladies all surprised me!
What happened was my sister and I left the house and were headed for Galena (I didn’t know where we were going though). We were driving for a while, then she said she needed to go to the bathroom. So we stopped at a gas station. I was lying down because I didn’t feel good.😟 I sat up and saw my sister looking past me at something, so being a normal human being I looked to see what she was looking at. A car had just pulled in. It was one of my friend’s older brothers, I laid back down and was kinda confused. Then I shot back up and looked back at them and was like “wait, is that Kira??”. I got out of the car and ran to give her a hug. I was really surprised. 😲
We got back into the car and started driving again. We were driving for a while, and I had to go to the bathroom, so we stopped at a Starbucks. Can you guess what happened? If you guessed that someone surprised me there, then you are absolutely right! 😆 My friend Ambria was there. I was super excited, but I had to run to the bathroom. 😂 When I walked out of the bathroom, guess what happened? My friends Hannah and Lisa were standing there. So I was super surprised AGAIN. 😂
We got our drinks and were back on the road again! I still had no idea where we were going though. We listened to some music and talked most of the way there. When we were getting closer I realized where we were! 😏 I had been to Galena a few times and recognized it. I was excited of course! My mom and two little sisters were already there and they both came running out to greet us. 😃
We figured out where everyone would sleep and then headed upstairs. We started playing some games while my mom cooked dinner. My mom said, “Hey Cassia, there’s one more person coming.” I literally had NO idea who it was. I was excited though! 😃
We were still playing some games when my mom said, “Your last guest is here. Your friend from CO.” I was confused at first. In my mind I was thinking, what is CO?? Then I suddenly understood what she meant, COLORADO. I was like, “NO WAY!! WHAT?!? OH MY GOSH!” I ran outside and met her while she was walking up the steps. It was ELLE from Colorado! The friend I hadn’t seen in about 7 years. 😱😱 You don’t even know how happy I was to see her, I almost cried 😊😊
So, that’s the story! 😆
They attempted to hold me. It kinda failed. 😂 Basically what happened was, I started dying of laughter while they were trying to hold me and when they told me to relax, they almost dropped me. 😂😂😂
Nobody’s paying attention, except me. 😂

So on my birthday we went to downtown Galena (which is super cool and cute by the way). We went to a bunch of cute shops, took tons of pictures and had lots of fun!
Stair pictures were a must. 😊😍😆
There were so many hugs! 😆
Check out my amazing friends who are literally models 😍😱😍😱😍
We were laughing 99% of the time we were together.
Attempting the can can. 😬😂
This was something really special! We all got matching necklaces with our birthstones. 😍
Beautiful ladies! ❤❤❤
Another attempt. But this time it was the pyramid. 😂
As you can see from this picture it also failed. 😂😂😂
I hope you enjoyed that VERY long post! It was a really special time and I wanted to share it with you all! Thanks for reading!
