We invited all of our friends to a local park that has a playground and a sprinkler park. No admission fees, no presents, didn't even rent a shelter. We threw some blankets on the grass, brought the 7 dozen cupcakes I had baked and watched our kids frolic together while we visited. P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N.
While some friends still brought presents, the idea was so simple and fun and really gets to the meaning of celebrating your birthday - quality time with people you care about. Loved it, had a great day, will do it again. Yay for summer birthdays!
