Happy Columbus Day! As you know from a previous post, the weekend before last was my daughter’s first homecoming. Well, this weekend we celebrated my oldest son’s 13th birthday. Yes, that’s right, my oldest boy became a teenager Saturday, and the weekend before last (also on a Saturday) my 14-year-old daughter attended her first homecoming dance. Boy, I really feel old now…LOL…
Aside from my growing youngins, the past few weekends were really fun and enjoyable. This weekend the family gathered at my house, and we all enjoyed the annual October wiener roast. Since JB (my oldest son) and Cyndie’s (my daughter) birthday occurs during the cooler seasons, we make the wiener roasts an annual event. Of course, the kids enjoy it, so that’s all that really matters, right? For my youngest son, Joe, his birthday’s in March. Therefore, since March is a warmer season — too warm for a wiener roast– we usually visit Pounds Hollow. There we grill burgers, hot dogs and enjoy a day of swimming.
Next time you find yourself looking for a birthday party idea, consider a day of swimming if your child’s birthday takes place on a warm month, and if your child’s birthday falls on a cooler month, then have a wiener roast instead. It’s fun for everyone and affordable as well. Since I’m giving out birthday party suggestions, I might as well take this time to invite you to read one of my articles, which relates to the subject. Go ahead and check out Planning a Fall Birthday Party for Your Child — Sure to Be a Success, and then leave me your comments.
I suppose I’d better get back to my writing life now that the fun has ended… as least for another month anyway.
