Sophie's First, Second, and Third Birthday angels... gifts from Aunt Kathy and "Unca" Wayne.
We've been researching venues for Sophie's birthday party today. We kept her first three birthdays quite low-key... some times we were away at a cottage, and when we were home we simply invited family over for dinner and cake. However, she attended her first-ever "kids" birthday party earlier this year and immediately started asking if she could invite her friends for a birthday party this year. We decided to go for it... and with her year at preschool coming to an end in a few weeks we want to nail down the details as soon as possible so we can invite some of her school friends. Up for debate: Kidscape (where her friend Lily's birthday party was held), Storybook Gardens (one of Sophie's favourite places), and the London Regional Children's Museum (another fave, and I believe the "winner" after all our birthday-party research.) I'm already surprised at how much research and planning (and money!) goes into a birthday party for 8 four-year-olds... I can only imagine what the next ten years of birthday party planning will look like!
