[Woman Off-Screen] What was your favorite birthday?
00:02
My favorite birthday...
00:05
My favorite birthday was my eighth birthday.
00:14
My mom is a party planner.
00:15
She has put on extravagant birthday parties for me,
00:19
and does a lot of proms and things.
00:21
So, for my eighth birthday,
00:23
it was a two day Indiana Jones adventure.
00:28
Even invitations were hieroglyphics
00:30
that you had to decipher,
00:32
in order to get the information
00:34
for where the birthday party was.
00:36
And then she made,
00:37
I think there was like 10 of my friends,
00:38
she made them all passports.
00:41
And then, my grandparents, who lived in Northern California,
00:43
they had a horse ranch,
00:45
and all of their neighbors also had horses,
00:47
so there was just acres and acres
00:49
of land that had nothing on it.
00:50
And she created this whole scavenger hunt for two days,
00:54
where we felt like we were being transported to Egypt,
00:57
and we had someone stamp our passports.
01:00
And then, something happened,
01:01
where then it kicked into the adventure happening,
01:04
and then there was all these clues,
01:05
and we had to decipher codes,
01:06
and my grandparents paper mached this huge, giant boulder
01:09
that chased us down.
01:11
And she had music cues
01:12
that went with the Indiana Jones theme.
01:14
And then, at the end of the night,
01:16
once the sun went down,
01:17
we roasted marshmallows, we slept in a tent,
01:20
and then the adventure started first thing in the morning.
01:22
And it lasted again until the very end,
01:24
where she has built this graveyard,
01:26
where we took shovels and undug one of the graves.
01:29
And inside, it was a treasure chest,
01:31
and in there was all of these fake crowns
01:34
and jewels and chocolate.
01:36
It was so amazing.
01:38
It was the best birthday ever.
