Drew has never had a birthday party with friends before this year. We had wanted to do one last year when he turned five, but we had a three week-old baby at the time, and it didn't seem like a great idea. We decided to have a friend party for Drew this year instead. The party was originally scheduled for his actual birthday, but we had to reschedule when he got sick the afternoon before his party was supposed to happen. We rescheduled for this past Saturday, and we were thrilled that the birthday boy stayed healthy this time, and we were able to have the party as planned. We invited five friends - two sets of brothers and another boy, and the six of them had lots of fun.
Since March is usually still pretty cold here in Michigan, we had to do an indoor party, and since our house is small, we didn't think we should try to do the party here. We decided to go ahead and do the party at a big field house in our town. They have lots of activities to pick from, and all the activities are indoors. It ended up being a very easy party to plan - hardly any prep - just show up, pay, and play!
We started the party with breakfast at Dunkin Donuts. We got a big box of Munchkins and a bunch of milks. The boys ate through almost 50 Munchkins!
