Every year for my children’s birthday’s I start a few months out trying to get a fix on what they want to do to celebrate.

I am never sure what I will give them to celebrate their special day or what they will be into. As you can imagine, their whims change from day to day; but I am happy to see as they get older that they are easier to figure out.

With my oldest, he just wants to have a friend over and get to have uninterrupted play time. Uninterrupted meaning I keep them supplied with snacks and munchies and the little brother stays out of their hair. Luckily, his birthday falls around Memorial Day, so they can play outside, fish and play in the woods.
