My nine year old son had simple requests for his birthday. No gifts, just money. No party just two friends. Go out to eat and maybe bowling or a movie.
This may seem like a lot but this Momma is used to deckin out the house with a theme and inviting the whole town over for the event. This was easy.
Kris came up with a fun idea (its actually a total youth pastor thing to plan). We would go on a progressive dinner at Z’s fav places! When his buddies arrived we went staight to Toys RUs to spend the bday money from family and friends. The purchase? A new helmet, Rip Stick (scooter scateboard deal) and a jump.
We started with a game of bowling where P.J. the 4 year old won! Next it was Arbys for the appitizer…mozz sticks. The next stop was Wendys for burgers and fries. And the dessert place of choice is Red Robin of course, for mud pie and a song. It was simple, fun and felt very grown up!
