Birthday parties have never been my thing. The planning, organization, preparation...all of it is exhausting and frankly, I'm not good at it. We used to get away with not having birthday parties because we would just take the boys to Disneyland and call it a day. And the boys were so excited to go, it never occurred to them that they were missing out on a party.
For Matt's birthday, we decided to take the kids for a round of golf. Matt and Ryan have recently taken up golf and really enjoy it. Luckily his closest friends enjoy it too because we enticed them with lunch and a round of golf as a "party".
