This year I was not in the mood to do a friend birthday for Eli. but I figured it was his birthday, and I still wanted him to have fun. So I decided to give him some options: a small party at our house with a couple friends, or a party at Chuck E. Cheeses with all his cousins. He chose cousins! I was so relieved. Although I knew it would cost a little more, I knew the stress would be way less, because there would be parents there to watch their own kids.
It was a success. And he was able to be there with ALL his cousins, even the ones that live in Montana and Idaho. Eli was elated!
He got tons of presents. A couple of his favorites were his two Zhu zhu pets and some Legos. He also received a bouncy ball making kit, hoodie, water bottle, yo-yo, and some cash.
We played, ate pizza, ate cupcakes, and sang Happy Birthday.
I thought it was a great party and very easy for me.
The next day Ryan’s mom had another little party to celebrate him and Ryan’s grandma Teeples’ birthday. He is one spoiled kid.
