We like parties. My friends and I often have theme parties in autumn and winter. But in summer when the weather is good our families and friends often have outdoor parties. We cook food on fire, play volleyball and badminton. Sometimes we go on picnics to the river. The girls like swimming in warm water and the boys go fishing. We take tents and sleep in them. Outdoor parties are my favourite ones!
