There have been a few cold snaps, but perhaps it's not too late to have an outdoor party where you are. Denese tells us about the the outdoor birthday party she threw for her daughter: What a wonder two has been. Over the last year, my daughter has blossomed into a bright, vibrant little girl. I wanted to celebrate her passage from two to three, with a fun-filled day of friends, family and outdoor activities.
Outdoor play is my daughter's favorite past-time, so began the theme for her October party. DIY hayrides, glitter coated pumpkins, our cream chocolate cake by Creative Anchorage and lots of bouncing around... What a wonderful day it was.
(Is it too quiet where you live? Too often walks to our local parks are met with silence. Where have all the kids gone? Why aren't neighborhoods booming with laughter? Moms and dads, join me - let's get kids outside again!!)
