Then a good friend of mine mentioned that they never did parties for their kids until they were 5. And the more I thought about it, the more I realized that Will really doesn't care about all those little "extra" things. So much of it would be for pictures sake...and that much work simply wasn't enough motivation for a picture.
But I wanted him to have some friends over and at least do a little celebration.
Birthday Play Date.
The night before, we went to all of Will's friends houses and invited them over to play the following day. It was meant to be super informal, just come and play outside for a while and eat cake. Parents were told they could drop their kids off, or if they wanted to stay and chat that was welcome as well. They could come when they wanted and leave when they wanted.
It was perfect.
Will had about 5 friends show up to play.
They enjoyed jumping on the trampoline.
Playing with some of Will's trains.
After a while, I had to close the lid so she wouldn't eat it all. She threw a fit and clawed at it trying to get it back open.
It was to let the kids run wild while all of the adults just sat back and chatted.
More tracks for his train set.
Happy Birthday Will!
