Kid's Birthday Parties

Kid's Birthday Parties! What else could we do? We've done the parties at places. We've done the parties at home (inside and outside). We've done the parties at grandparents. My kids are young and I feel like I'm partied out already!

Of course, we've had 16 birthdays with our children already (at just 3,5, and 8 yrs old)! If you look at it like that, it's a lot of party planning in 8 short years!

My Game Master's birthday is coming up in May. I told him that it is his last single-digit birthday! After that, he will be double-digits for the rest of his life! He laughed and asked me if I was going to cry! (I just might...)

He recently went to a birthday party at a big play place called "Pump It Up" - a huge room full of inflatables. Saturday we are going to a Pirate's Birthday party to go treasure hunting... We've done water fun (slip-n-slide), golf, games, backyard basketball...

Any inexpensive suggestions? What have you done? What have you been to?

You need to go check out owlhaven at http://owlhaven.blogspot.com. She did an article about this just last Saturday. She got lots of people responding to her about their ideas. Hard to believe you've done all those parties already. We just do big ones at 5, 10, 16 and 21. So, I have a couple years before I do a really big shabang again.

you could always make it more personal.. just invite a few of his closest friends- take them out to lunch and then to a movie? what does he want to do? anything? bowling?

Oh MY GOSH! Our LoveBug ADORES Pump It Up! I can't drive by without weeping and gnashing of teeth...which is pretty bad because there's one not far from our home.
