The Party of the Year

It's getting time to have a BIG birthday party again. I am beginning to search for inflatables and work out the details. So far, I think we are going to have an 18' slide, a moonwalk, play tug-a-war, have a sack race, marble pick up, an obstacle course, and have a cotton candy and sno-kone machine. We are debating about serving hot dogs and chips again b/c we think we are doing it from 2-5PM. My DH insists on the food but thinks we should skip the moonwalk. I think skip the food and have the moonwalk b/c the little kids prefer the moonwalk over the slide.

While I was working out these details, my DH called from the road somewhere in AZ and has decided to spend his time in the car giving me his unsolicited advice about the party. He has decided that he won't pay for it w/o cheeseburgers instead of hot dogs. I hope he is joking b/c I am not about to spend all that extra money on the meat and even more on the lettuce, tomato, mayo, cheese, etc. People couldn't care less if I just do hot dogs, it is so much less work. I may have to do a switcheroo on him. It is not something I normally do, it is his game but I think I will give it a try. I will agree to do the burgers and mysteriously show up with hot dogs. (Ann, quit laughing.) His motto is that it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission. I'll show him. I guess he should have been reading my blog, huh?

The date will be April 18th so if you are local or will be in the area, you are invited. Lisa, Atlasien, Kerry, Alison, Lorie, Amy, Skirbo, Torina, and even the Bodie Bunch are invited, (if I left your name off that doesn't mean you are left out:) just let me know how many in your family are coming so I have enough hot dogs. LOL Last year we had 75+ b/c we were new to the area, we are hoping to at least double it this year and we could use your help.
